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

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

DESCRIPTION
       glxinfo lists information about the GLX extension, OpenGL capable visu-
       als, 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).

       Command line options include:

       -t      By default the visual info is presented in a concise 80 charac-
               ter  wide tabular format. The -t option directs glxinfo to pro-
               duce a wider, more readable tabular format.

       -v      Directs glxinfo to generate a verbose format output  style  for
               the visual list similar to the info of xdpyinfo.

       -b      Print the ID of the "best" visual on screen 0.

       -l      Print interesting OpenGL limits.

       -i      Use indirect rendering connection only.

       -display displayname
               Specify the display to query.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY To get the default host, display number, and screen.
