In the Wine Application, I was trying to play a game & an error keeps coming up saying, "OpenGL 3.3 or later is required". How do I fix this?

It means that the game requires OpenGL 3.3, but your graphics card does not support it.

You can see which version of OpenGL your graphics card supports if you install the mesa-utils package and then run the command:
Code:
glxgears -info
That will display an animation of some gears.
Let it run for a few seconds and then press escape and after the animation has stopped, it will display some information about your graphics cards capabilities.

In order to run that particular game, you will need a newer graphics card!

Hey Jaskinasin,

That's a neat little tool /command.

Thanks

Here's mine just for the hell of it.
Code:
glxgears -info
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
