I am trying to set up
libfreenect to work with the Pi, to be able to capture images from the Kinect. There are a lot of discussions all around the web on this topic, but as far as I can tell no-one has reported a success story.
I have been attempting to solve the problem via the
libfreenect route, and have managed to install the library on the Pi. When running the test program
glview, however, the following error occurs:
freeglut (/usr/local/bin/glview): OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display ':0.0'
Searching around the internet, it appears some other people have had the same problems on Ubuntu. This blog is running Ubuntu on BeagleBoard, and gets the same problem; they report:
I hit the error:
Xlib: extension “GLX” missing on display “:0”
This seems to be a freeglut problem - OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display “:0”
I removed Nvidia drivers (I think this involved apt-get remove nvidia-common or some such, but this is the one step I forgot to document).
Can I follow a similar route on the Pi? If not, what other avenues are open to me to fix this problem?
