glxinfo - display info about a GLX extension and OpenGL renderer.


glxinfo [-t] [-v] [-b] [-display displayname]


glxinfo lists information about the GLX extension, OpenGL capable visuals, and the OpenGL renderer on an X server. The GLX and renderer info includes the version and extension attributes. The visual info lists the GLX visual attributes available for each OpenGL capable visual (e.g. whether the visual is double buffered, the component sizes, Z-buffering depth, etc).
