Abaqus / OpenGL problem

Hi,

I want to use Abaqus (http://www.3ds.com/products-services/si … ts/abaqus/), which I need for my master thesis, but encounter a problem when starting it.

In the terminal it says the following when starting it:

X Error: code 2 major 154 minor 3: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation).
X Error: code 169 major 154 minor 5: GLXBadContext.
X Error: code 0 major 154 minor 26: 0.
X Error: code 169 major 154 minor 4: GLXBadContext.

(...) EDIT: THIS FOLLOWS A LOT OF TIMES

Warning: Your system need to be reconfigured to allow OpenGL
rendering to a pixmap or you will only be able to print to
raster formats.

The same happens when using

abaqus cae -mesa

The problem is, that the application window is nearly transparent, when a white window (browser, for example) is behind it, nothing is readable. I made screenshots with a colored and a black background to show what I mean:

I believe the menu should not be transparent at all. I also believe the "working area" is not displayed correctly, it should be blue with a grid.

Example when starting it on windows:

Changing from mesa-libgl to nvidia-libgl made it impossible to start the program at all, I will deliver the error messages if needed.

glxinfo shows the following, but I have totally no idea what to look for in there:

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

I've never seen this program and I avoid Nvidia on my machines.  What are you using for a desktop environment / windows manager?  Does it have a compositor?

I suggest trying a simple environment such as openbox or (my choice) i3wm, and do not use a compositor.  The full feature DEs (Gnome, KDE, Cinnamon,  etc...) have compositors built in to drive the eye-candy.

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

Thank you for your reply!

I use pure openbox, with compton though. Deactivating compton solves the transparency problem, which is great!

The error message stays the same, I believe that

Warning: Your system need to be reconfigured to allow OpenGL
rendering to a pixmap or you will only be able to print to
raster formats.

is important, but I just don't get it.

The problem is, that in the "point adding mode" (windows screenshot #2) the grid on linux just flashes in and immediately disappears, which renders it useless.

This: https://polymerfem.com/showthread.php?1 … -rendering implies that it could be the graphics driver, can it be that nouveau is more compatible than the official nvidia driver?

FYI, I've got a GTX 970, so a pretty recent model.

Could changing from nvidia to nouveau be a solution? I think I will try it, though I'm afraid of unexpected hassle.

Thank you very much for your idea so far! smile

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

You didn't install the nvidia driver correctly. You will want to install nvidia-libgl as well as lib32-nvidia-libgl (if it's 32bit) if this is an OpenGL programm. Otherwise you are using MESA's software renderer which doesn't provide the necessary support. Also be aware, that there's currently a bug going around, which should be fixed with the next nvidia package, that might lead to crashes with programs using OpenGL. The driver to fix this is in testing, either install that or temporarily recompile glibc without --enable-lock-elision (check the  wiki on ABS and PKGBUILDS on how to accomplish that)

I should've read OP more carefully you already ran into that bug. Here's a link to the relevant bug report: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/46064 The things I mentioned still apply.

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

Thank you very much, this helps me a lot!

I hope its okay to ask a succeeding question instead of opening a new thread:

How do I install the testing driver? I see that its possible to activate the [testing] repo and upgrade the whole system, but that is not what I want.

I thought the AUR package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nvidia-beta/) would help me, so I tried

yaourt nvidia-beta

But it looks like it has to remove for example nvidia-utils before installing the new version, but this in the end fails, because several programs depend on nvidia-libgl or so. How do I install this?

Could it be the solution to take this https://www.archlinux.org/packages/test … 64/nvidia/ and all its dependencies from [testing] and install it by pacman -U ?

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

I ran into the same problem and following the instructions below resolved the issue with Abaqus/CAE.

Abaqus CAE has display issues on Red Hat 7 and SLES 12 due to the new Gnome 3 settings.
Portfolio / Domain:    SIMULIA Abaqus Unified FEA / featdomain
Product:    featgroup
OS:    Linux
Detected level(s):    SIMULIA Abaqus 6.14 Refresh4
DESCRIPTION   
The Abaqus/CAE main window and menus appear translucent on Linux platforms RHEL 7, SLES 12, and SLES 11 SP3. A workaround is to set the environment variable XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS. This can be done in abaqus_v6.env (or the SMA/site/custom_v6.env) with "import os; os.environ['XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS'] = '1'."

Re: Abaqus / OpenGL problem

Thanks for sharing, however I hope sbt1 is not still working on his master thesis two years later smile

As such I'm going to close this thread.
