Hello.

I have Ubuntu  16.04.6, Cura 4.4.1. And layers preview works in  "compatibility mode".

In options "Force layer view compatibility" is disabled.

 

Why I can't see other layers (speed, line type).

 

PS: I have 3 monitors 1980x1080+1980x1080+900x1600 (sum display is 4860x1600)

    In stderr.log it shows the detected OpenGL version

     

    2020-02-03 08:46:34,521 - DEBUG - [MainThread] UM.View.GL.OpenGL.__init__ [112]: OpenGL Version:  3.0 Mesa 18.0.5

     

    It's saying that the version is 3.0, you need version 4.2 to get the full functionality.

     

    If you run glxinfo in a terminal what do you get in the ExtendedRendererInfo section, for example, this is what I see

     

    Extended renderer info (GLX_MESA_query_renderer):
        Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center (0x8086)
        Device: Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2)  (0x1916)
        Version: 18.0.5
        Accelerated: yes
        Video memory: 3072MB
        Unified memory: yes
        Preferred profile: core (0x1)
        Max core profile version: 4.5
        Max compat profile version: 3.0
        Max GLES1 profile version: 1.1
        Max GLES[23] profile version: 3.2

    Great! thanks for Idea. 

    My hardware supports higher versions of openGL. I use this command to run:

    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=450 ./AppRun

    Sorry, yes, I missed that. OK, well, there's your answer because in there it says:

    38 minutes ago, DeeZ said:

    Max core profile version: 3.3

     

    So the accelerated GL is version 3.3 and it needs to be 4.2 or greater.

     

    I am also using Mesa version 18.0.5 so it's not as if your drivers are old. Maybe your hardware simply doesn't support a later version of GL?

    The internet says that the AMD Barts is capable of supporting OpenGL 4.4 so I guess you need to update to a later driver?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
