  • You can use glxinfo (form the meta-utils package) for information about your driver and OpenGL.

    glxinfo | grep OpenGL

    for info about your driver and OpenGL.

    You can use lspci for info about your PCI devices (so, VGA too).

    lspci -v -s `lspci | awk '/VGA/{print $1}'`

    for info about you video card.
