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?
