• Frame debugging and profiling can be done on the latest Pascal family of GPUs (Requires a Linux driver version above 370.00)
• The Range Profiler is a powerful new view for determining how your application utilizes the GPU
	○ All new performance library for improved GPU instrumentation as well as collection speed and accuracy
	○ Improved data mining allowing the user to construct ranges from sections of the scene based on predefined or user-defined criteria
	○ Elapsed GPU time is reported for each range, as well as hardware statistics detailing how efficiently the GPU was used
• Added new Disable Depth Test and Disable Cull Face performance tests
• Better support for GL_ARB_draw_indirect, GL_ARB_multi_draw_indirect, and other extensions
• Improved Resources View UI, including side by side selection and resource inspection
• Improved the Geometry View with powerful visualization capabilities and automated detection of vertex buffer data errors
• Added Issues column to the Events View to point out potential bugs and performance issues, correlated to the event stream

Excited to try this…but nothing happens when I run it. That is, no segfault, it just sits on the command line doing nothing without opening any windows.

If I change to using the system Qt libraries (munge with LD_LIBRARY_PATH) then it will open the main window, but NOT the x86/i386 selector, and none of the Qt widgets do anything when you click on them.

Linux graphics debugger 1.0 will start as expected, but has the GLVND bug mentioned in another thread.

Ubuntu 16.04 with i3wm
375.20 drivers
GTX 780

Hi jaycse,

Sorry to hear you encountered this issue. But I can’t reproduce it with this setup:
LGD 2.0 on a clean Ubuntu 16.04, 375.20 driver, GTX 660, it works fine with and without i3wm.

Could you try on a different OS?

Hi jaycse,

Any update on your issue?
Could you use strace command to trace the process when launching LGD? Make sure you trace the child process as well.
Thanks.
