QTCreator does not start: Could not initialize GLX
I installed Qt 5.8 with QtCreator on Ubuntu 16.04 with a NVidia GTX1050i card and nvidia drivers installed. GLX version 1.4 seems to be running as shown with glxinfo.
The issue is that when I start qtcreator from a remote ssh session that it won't start.
I get the messages:
Could not initialize GLX
Aborted core dumped
So far i haven't found any solution how to solve this issue.
Any help is appreciated
@henkman Try to start it once from terminal with "-noload Welcome" parameter. If it helps go to Help/About Plugins..." and disable Welcome plug-in there.
See here for more information: http://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-faq.html
Thanks for your response. That was one of the things i found on the internet but unfortunately it does not seem to work for me,
I also tried these :
-noload Welcome -noload QmlDesigner -noload QmlProfiler
No succes at all...
@henkman "remote ssh session" - that one I didn't see. Does QtCreator start properly locally?
Are you also doing X11 forwarding in your remote ssh session ?
