[SOLVED]Building error: GLXBadFBConfig

Hi, i’m trying to build synfig from synfigstudio-linux-build.sh.
I’m using a fedora 23 and i have cloned the source from origin/master, but i get this error:

Making all in images

How could i solve?
Thanks in advance

Hello kinderp and welcome here …

Have a look to the dev ml … the problem has already been identified and solved.

Thanks for your reply. In my source code i have already the fix:
This is my Layer.cpp:

841Layer::build_rendering_task(Context context)const
843	rendering::Task::Handle task = build_rendering_task_vfunc(context);
844	return task ? task : rendering::Task::Handle(new rendering::TaskSurfaceEmpty());

So i have copied /synfig/share directory that i have in another machine and then i have tried to launch synfigstudio but i get this error:

[arkimede@localhost gui]$ ./synfigstudio 

   synfig studio -- starting up application...

synfig(87236) [18:59:49] info: rendering threads 16
lt-synfigstudio: rendering/opengl/internal/context.cpp:162: synfig::rendering::gl::Context::Context(): asserzione "context" non riuscita.
Annullato (core dump creato)

Any idea?

manually configure the renderer to software should do the job :



or you can install synfigstudio dev 1.1.5 and configure the renderer to legacy from the preferences.

My ~/.config/synfig/ dir contains just a fifo file.
So i have created settings-1.0 adding the two lines:

[arkimede@localhost ~]$ cat .config/synfig/settings-1.0 

But i get the same error. Where am i wrong?

I would try it as a last chance.

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

and keep your source and other synfig related files clean. I have recently build on fedora 23 and it was not so “annoying”.

First of all thank you for your patience.
I have deleted all installation’s files and restart from scratch.
I have pulled from origin master (so i think the version should be 1.1.6).
I have rebuilded using synfigstudio-linux-build.sh with “full” option from autobuild directory:

./synfigstudio-linux-build.sh full

I’ve got always the same error.
I’m currently using a Fedora 23 on VMWare

glxinfo.txt (33.3 KB)

Did you have installed synfig 1.1.5 dev and set legacy render from preferences ? That’s rare… i don’t remember i did that …

, are you there ?

Hi, I have same error recently, I guess the command line of “synfig” has default settings(cobra ?) which causes this problem. The build stopped at the stage of making icons and splash. But as you might know, I can use the synfig (version 0.64.x ) command installed by DNF to make all icons and splash.

Ok guys some news

i have tried to install your deb in this way:

[arkimede@localhost Scaricati]$ sudo alien -r synfigstudio_1.1.5-20160131_amd64.deb
Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package synfigstudio: postinst postrm

The version of libdb i have installed (from repo) is 5.3.28

I don’t know how to move forward in the installation. I’m blocked here :slight_smile:

i have installed synfig 0.64 from dnf
i have modified in the Makefile( synfig/synfig-studio/images/Makefile) the SYNFIG variable
from synfig to /usr/bin/synfig to use the 0.64 version

make creates some icons but later exits with an error on jack_icon.png.
make_output.txt (76.1 KB)

The good news is now i can launch synfig-studio but i have no icons in the gui.
If you have some ideas to solve completely let me know :slight_smile:
Currently i can start to modify and build the code even without icons

Thanks to all :slight_smile:

the jack_icon.sif is made in later version than 0.64.x, and has some new layer parameter used.

And I am sorry, I have just check my Fedora, it has a 1.0.x instead of 0.64.x. so it would be a workaround if you download and install 1.0.x stable version :smiley:

Regarding GLXBadFBConfig issue, I found that there is a quite similar topic :
stackoverflow.com/questions/2384 … untu-14-04

download 1.0.2, install, change SYNFIG variable from synfig to /opt/synfig/synfig :slight_smile:

Thanks, add solved in the topic. :wink:

Oups my fault … why .deb ? … .rpm for sure !

Glad for you it’s solved !

I think you already have read the dev" doc . Do not hesitate to ask for tips about the source organization, here ; or better to the dev ml. I think what’s help me at the beginning of the source exploration was some translation in the user doc’… but, we all are not the same :slight_smile:

Thanks, i’m starting to read the wiki. See you soon :slight_smile:

About this error:

rendering/opengl/internal/context.cpp:162: synfig::rendering::gl::Context::Context()

I obtain it at ./synfigstudio startup when compiling with DEBUG=1 on command line before the ./synfigstudio-linux-build.sh
Without DEBUG=1 it works like a charm.
The bad part is there is no debug info :confused:

Using Fedora 23 x64 as Guest OS
in Virtualbox 5.0.20 (3D acceleration on)
with 5.0.16 additions (the last additions version generates some errors)
on Windows 8.1

I was getting same kind of error but after re-configuration of all parameters it is fixed now. I hope it will help on your way!

The problem has been solved in another post already, we needed to compile with --without-opengl
See wiki.synfig.org/Dev:IDE_Linux
