Unity3D (game engine). "....wglCreateContext...." failed

Post by unlikely » Sun Jan 21, 2018 3:16 pm

I installed what I think is the latest development version of wine (3.0-rc5) on Ubuntu Mate 16.04 (Xenial).

I tried to run Unity3D
See https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44387
See https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... &iId=35935

Running it from a terminal:

env WINEPREFIX="/home/bob/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/bob/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Start\ Menu/Programs/Unity\ 2017.2.0f3\ \(64-bit\)/Unity.lnk

This displays a window headed "Unity 2017.2.0f3". The contents of the window are black. After a few seconds, the contents turn to grey. The program takes 100% of cpu and does not terminate.
The software outputs a large number of fixme messages plus the error message

Code: Select all

005b:err:wgl:X11DRV_wglCreateContextAttribsARB Context creation failed (error 1)
This is running under Ubuntu Mate 16.04
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 12.0.6

$ lspci
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Wrestler [Radeon HD 7310]

This sounds like a problem with wine and OpenGL or the graphics hardware. I would welcome any suggestions for fixing it.
