Chromium use-gl option when running on X11


#1

Hi,

the default option after building Yocto rpb desktop image for the chromium start script is ‘–use-gl=egl’. However, I found that ‘–use-gl=desktop’ also works since ‘chromium://gpu’ reports the graphic features as accelerated. AFAIK this should result in GLX usage.

Further, in another thread (Glamor initialization failed) I’m currently discussing the Glamor dependency on EGL/GLES2. From this point of view EGL is used by the X server. So EGL/GLESv2 seems to be considered the best for graphics acceleration.

What is the best option regarding reliablity and performance? Is the compositing working reliable if we use X11 on the one hand and egl on chromium on the other hand?

Best regards
