    I'm having problems Installing Stepmania on Ubuntu.


    Ok, When I first tried to compile the game it said I needed a bunch of different Packeges...So I got them.
    THEN, i tried again it said and i quote for real:
    "No OpenGL library's Found."
    Now, Usally I can google that quote or just like
    "Linux OpenGL" and I find what I want...Nope didn't work.
    I'm Really Stuck here.
    I can't find OpenGL.
    I know that the computer I'm using supports OpenGL drivers. (I had windows Installed before so I know)
    As far as I know this is the only problem.


    And yes If anyone is wondering I am a
    -_-;


    Regards,
    David.

    Try
    Code:
    apt-cache search opengl
    There should be some appropriate libraries there. They'll probably start with lib.

    Post the output of lspci. That lists all the devices on the pci bus, it should indicate what card and what drivers to install.

    That's weird. It's always been installed by default for me. And there doesn't appear to be anything in apt to install it.

    Hold on... it's L first but lowercase. I think you used an uppercase i.
    Code:
    lspci

    Okay, you have an nVidia card. Here's instructions for the drivers:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BinaryDriver...t=%28nvidia%29

    Have a go, it's all pretty straightfoward.

    Okay, let's see if we can disable the nvidia drivers. Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Find:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier "Nvidia Corporation NV5M64 etc etc"
        Driver "nvidia"
    Change
    Code:
    Driver "nvidia"
    to
    Code:
    Driver "nv"
    Reboot, and hopefully you'll have your gui back.
