Yocto/Qt5.6: QXcbIntegration: Cannot create platform OpenGL context

  • I am working on Nitrogen6x board that runs on Yocto 2.1 with Qt 5.6.2 support. I am able to build a sample qt application Qt Quick Examples - Shader Effects present under Examples section of Qt Creator. Copied over the executable on my nitrogen board. Have set the required QT environment variables on the terminal where I launched the sample qt application and I am noticing this error:

    QXcbIntegration: cannot create platform OpenGL context, neither GLX nor EGL are enabled.
    Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options QFlags(), depthBufferSize 24, redBufferSize -1, greenBufferSize -1, blueBufferSize -1, alphaBufferSize -1, stencilBufferSize 8, samples -1, swapBehavior 2, swapInterval 1, profile 0)

    I tried running a sample application Analog Clock Example from Qt Creator Examples section, this program uses only QT Widgets and am able to run the application on Nitrogen6x board successfully.

    In my packagegroup-qt5-toolchain-target.bb file I have removed the below lines (due to some GIT pull related errors).

    ${@bb.utils.contains('DISTRO_FEATURES', 'wayland', '${USE_WAYLAND}', '', d)} \
    ${USE_RUBY} \

    Does this change has any resemblance to the problem am facing with OpenGL. If I try to do sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev or equivalent on Yocto Terminal it shows apt-get: command not found.

    How do I need to resolve this OpenGL related errors. Any help on this is deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.
