Your OpenGL drivers don’t support

required OpenGL features for basic rendering.

Application cannot continue. Please exit and use an older version.

Hi it sounds like you don’t have an openGL available. You can probably get access to openGL by launching this in a lab machine that has a GUI. If you are launching remotely you can set up X forwarding by adding an X or Y to your ssh.

ssh -X

Or you can rebuild ParaView with offscreen mesa support.

Hi, I have been trying that and get that far where I got (OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 18.0.5).
[12345@login1(kelvin2) 25lsmeshcylinder]$ glxinfo | grep “OpenGL version”
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 18.0.5



GL version 2.1 with the gpu_shader4 extension is not supported by your graphics driver but is required for the new OpenGL rendering backend. Please update your OpenGL driver. If you are using Mesa please make sure you have version 10.6.5 or later and make sure your driver in Mesa supports OpenGL 3.2.
