i have this problem when installing vr

Caught exception GLContext: GLX extension not supported on display :0 while initializing rendering window 0
Caught exception Vrui::startDisplay: Could not create all rendering windows while initializing rendering windows

please what this exception

You can try to solve this error by installing “Mesa”(OpenGL) for Linux Mint before step 1 to install the arsandbox software. Open the terminal and insert the following lines, one at a time:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install freeglut3
sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev
sudo apt-get install binutils-gold
sudo apt-get install g++ cmake
sudo apt-get install libglew-dev
sudo apt-get install g++
sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev
sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev
sudo apt-get install libglew1.5-dev libglm-dev

After your development libraries have been installed to get information about the OpenGL and GLX implementations running on a particular X display.
Type / Copy / Paste:
glxinfo | Grep OpenGL

And then proceed to step 1 of the Arsandbox installation. The GLContext error should no longer occur.
