Model is completly gray.

1 Months+ 165

This started after my last system patch (it was working before).  I am using Linux Mint 20.04.


This is effecting multiple versions of Chitubox (1.6 - 1.8 Beta), I did try graphics compatibility mode, no change.


Also the orientation cube in 1.8 is messed up.  Ideas?

    Software rendering corrects the issue.  So there is some sort of an issue with the GPU acceleration.


    I am using Cinnamon Desktop.

    I have found the ""best"" way to run with software rendering (even though the FPS is utter TRASH) is to put 
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
    before running the file
    ( basically, you do "MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 ./AppRun" )
    The only true solution is for them to fix the OpenGL drawing so it applies color to the model ^^''

    YES - this worked! I use a start.sh script (Kubuntu 20.04.2 with AMD 5700XT card).

    Here is my script....put in the root folder of the unzipped chitubox v1.8.1 files.

    #!/bin/bash
    CB_DIR="/home/jason/Elegoo-ChiTuBox/CHITUBOX V1.8.1/"
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$CB_DIR/lib
    export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 
    export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
    "$CB_DIR"/AppRun

    Thank you, copied your script, and it has resolved my issues with both the model not displaying, and Chitubox 1.8.1.
