Does anyone know how to get OpenGL installed so I can play Sauerbraten? I've tried everything, but I'm not a Linuphile so I don't know what I'm doing. I'm still trying to figure out what repositories are. I've been able to get through the installation of Beryl, so everything is pretty, but I want to play some games. Would you peoples like to help me?

There are a couple of different ports of OpenGL. Which one are you trying to install?

From the looks of it, you shouldn't need any other OpenGL library, than the one that ships with Ubuntu.

What you probably need to do, is enable hardware acceleration for your video card.

Is it a NVidia, or ATI card? Anything else can be a bit tricky. With those, you should just be able to install the Official Nvidia drivers from the Universe, or Multiverse repository, via Synaptic.

Ubuntu likes the open source video drivers, over the official ones. Unfortunately, the Open ones are slower...
The Answers are out there, you've just got to know how to find them.
