I need to use a program on my laptop that requires OpenGL 3.3 or better. Apparently my "effective" OpenGL version is 3.0. Below is the output from glxinfo. This is xubuntu 16.10 and the graphics card is Intel HD 5500. So I don't understand what's going wrong, it seems like both hardware and software should be plenty up to date to get at least 3.3. Hope someone can help!
