This is a question

What is the output of:

sudo lshw -C display


Daniel van Vugt (vanvugt) said : #3

If you want to know what kernel drivers you are using for each device (including your GPUs) then run:

  lspci -k

If you want to see what OpenGL driver you are using then run:

  glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Can you help with this problem?
