    55You can run [https://www.opengl.org/ OpenGL] applications in an xpra session in a number of ways:
    66* by default the [/wiki/Xdummy] display server supports software opengl - but your proprietary drivers may interfere with this, and it will not use any GPU acceleration
    7 * by running the xpra session directly on a "real" X11 server using an accelerated display driver - this is hard to setup and undocumented: you need to use the {{{xvfb}}} switch to start an accelerated X11 server (modified xorg.conf), or use the {{{--use-display}}} switch
    8 * by [/wiki/ShadowServer shadowing] an existing accelerated X11 server (sub-optimal)
    97* by using [http://www.virtualgl.org/ VirtualGL], which allows GPU acceleration
     8* by running the xpra session directly on a "real" X11 server using an accelerated display driver - this is hard to setup and undocumented: you need to use the {{{xvfb}}} switch to start an accelerated X11 server (modified xorg.conf), or use the {{{--use-display}}} switch to bind to an existing one
