If you run:

sudo apt install lxde

Then log off and log in to the LXDE session is it OK there?

Yes it's a different desktop environment that doesn't need GPU accelleration. If it's OK there then we will know where the issue lies. You can log out of the LXDE session and back into your usual session after if you like

Does it come with different apps, can i be able to acces my apps from gnome
like wine and other apps i have installed?

Yes you can access your wine apps. It reads all the same configuration things. It's just a different interface. It's also just to test.

If you run:

sudo apt install lxde

Daniel Letzeisen (dtl131) said : #16

From manpage:
glxinfo - show information about the GLX implementation

Thanks, I'll check it out.
