I'm trying to open a remote application that needs WebGL, but some of the users manually disable it for other reasons. I tried to activate by command line, but it doesn't work, I tried several combinations, I know Chromium must be closed to accept the settings.

The command on the server looked like this:

chrome --enable-gpu -–use-gl=desktop --app="http://localhost:8000"

I read this documentation about Switches: Run Chromium with flags

In it I found a very detailed list: List of Chromium Command Line Switches

Even so Chromium or Google Chrome always starts disabled if the user has manually disabled it: enter image description here

What's really weird is that if hardware acceleration is enabled and I try to start with the command line to "enable" WebGL is also disabled.

This leads me to believe that I am not using switches correctly.

  • The URL to the detailed list does not work.

After some tests I managed to solve, the Switch was missing --in-process-gpu


start chrome --app="http://localhost:8000" --gpu --gpu-launcher --in-process-gpu --ignore-gpu-blacklist --ignore-gpu-blocklist
