    Can you please post the output of

    glxinfo | grep vendor


    I have the same problem. I use a Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz × 2, Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset, Ubuntu 14.04LTS.

    root@lucas-Inspiron-1545:~/src/SARndbox-1.5-001# glxinfo | grep vendor
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center

    I hope you can help me


    I have two issues from the set up stage at the moment.
    The first is I cannot get the full screen function to work.
    I have assigned the new keys as per the instructions but nothing happens. However, when using Chrome or in Terminal F11 operates full screen fine but not in any other application.
    So I am not able to complete the projector calibration.
    The second problem is with the camera freezing unless the cursor is moving.
    Here is the output from above command:

    server glx vendor string: SGI
    client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org

    Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64 bit
    Intel® Core™ i5-4430 CPU @ 3.00GHz × 4
    8 Gig RAM
    Asus R9 270X 2Gig Graphics card

    Thank you for any help.
    Regards, Glen


    Hello Oliver,
    Do you have any advise for the above issues with calibration?
    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Regards, Glen


    I was wondering, does anyone know why Oliver is not responding to this forum at the moment? He may be on a well earned holiday perhaps. I’m having issues with software and require his help.
    I hope all is well.

    There is an alternative driver for AMD/ATI graphics cards directly from the vendor, called fglrx. You might have more luck with those. In general, Linux driver support for ATI/AMD graphics cards is not as good as that for Nvidia graphics cards, which is why we recommend the latter. But if you already have an ATI/AMD card, while a bit more complex, it should work.

    If the driver change doesn’t fix it, what happens when you press Win+Scroll Lock while the program is running, to enter “burn mode?” Will updates still freeze?
