Ubuntu – WebGL doesn’t work in Chromium on Ubuntu


I've realized that I can't see graphics in Chromium 43.0.2357.81 Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit), such as plot x²+y² in Google.

I've tried several things but nothing seems to fix the problem.

A capture of the "chrome://gpu" is shown under these lines:


I hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance.

  • Here is bugreport of the bug that you have encoutered: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/chromium-browser/+bug/1463598

    The ubuntu maintainer of Chromium has deliberately disabled GPU acceleration in the ubuntu build in Chromium 43, see bugreports comments for details.

    To workaround this issue you can downgrade to a previous version of Chromium.
