Makie in vmware player

I am trying to make Makie.jl work within a virtual machine. I can install it successfully using the following setup:

  • ubuntu 18.04 host with nvidia 390.141 driver
  • cinamon 20.1 running in vmware player

But when I execute my program only some parts of the 3D scene are visualized.

You can find my code at:

If I run it in vmware only the tether is shown, the coordinate system is missing.
It works fine on the host.

Is anybody using GLMakie.jl successfully in a virtual machine?

To answer my own question: After upgrading cinamon and vmware client to the newest version all works fine. Only a small loss of performance compared to native.
And vmware player is free for private use.

Very happy! :smiley:
