HI ,

I was really excited after the  showcase. I downloaded and installed the Cura 5 but my computer is a bit old and I get an error "Could not probe OpenGL This program Requres OpenGL 2.0 or higher." Went to my Dell website and there is no update for my Video Card 😞 Anyway this issue will be addressed in the future? Or do I need to upgrade hardware? Get a new video Card?? 

 

Regards

 

Meir

    Yeah, sorry. We've been depending on OpenGL 2.0 for some time now. Did previous versions of Cura work for you?

    OpenGL 2.0 is a standard that was released 17.5 years ago. It is highly unlikely that you are using a computer with a GPU that is incapable of OpenGL 2.0. It is much more likely that the driver for your GPU is not correctly installed.

     

    It is also worth noting that running Cura via an "RDP" connection can lead to the same error message. It is something that is not supported by Ultimaker, but perhaps there is a workaround. Tell us more about your computer.

    having same problem on my brand new computer with 3080ti it also shows opengl probe error and closes out on cura 5. looks more like a bug because all other virsions or cura including the latest 4.13 work without issues.
