Dear Chimera users and developers,

We are trying to run Chimera remotely on our cluster via Nice DCV
visualization software:


This package provides GPU acceleration for OpenGL and
DirectX applications. It indeed works for most of apps, however with Chimera
we get the following startup error

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadContext
   Major opcode of failed request:  152 (GLX)
   Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
   Serial number of failed request:  73
   Current serial number in output stream:  73

Our cluster visualization node has nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards
and nvidia drivers 384.81

Chimera works if we use software mesa rendering, but it would be great if
we can make it work remotely with hardware rendering.

With kind regards,
Mihajlo Vanevic
