vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper Problem on Ubuntu

Dirk Fortmeier
Hi everybody,

I got some weird problem. When I try to use the
vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper I get the following error:

"vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper (0x28ab6f0): Rendering failed because
the following OpenGL extensions are required but not supported:  OpenGL
1.3 is required but not supported"

VTK compiles and displaying normal gl stuff works fine.

Any ideas what is wrong or how to fix this?

- Ubuntu 11.04 (64bit)
- nvidia-current (nvidia driver version 270.xx) and nvidia-current-dev
are installed
- no mesa stuff installed
- VTK from the git repository
- Nvidia Quadro 4000 Chipset

Re: vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper Problem on Ubuntu

That's odd for the chipset you listed.  Are you sure your driver is working properly?  AFAIK that card supports up to OpenGL 4.1.  Does running glewinfo show GL_VERSION_1_3 as OK?
