I'm using TightVNC, because I want to display an opengl program running on linux on a webpage. When I run the program ubigraph, I get the following error message:

freeglut (./ubigraph_server): OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display ':1'

Are there settings to configure or other programs to try to make this happen?

VirtualGL and TurboVNC would be the way to go.
