Missing errormessage/ check for missing library (libGLU)
Closed, ArchivedPublic


Blender Benchmark started and show up its programmwindow but after clicking on one of the benchmarks-buttons nothing happens.

Because there was no errormessage in the console I tried to start ./blender/blender direct an got an missing libGLU errormessage.


  1. search packages containing the missing lib
sudo dnf search libGLU

lists this package: mesa-libGLU.x86_64

  1. install the appropriate package providing the wanted lib
sudo dnf install mesa-libGLU.x86_64

Now it should work.

My System:

  • Intel i7 (64 Bit)
  • Nvidia Quadro K1000
  • Fedora Workstation 29 (GNU/Linux)

Under debian like linuxes replace dnf with apt.

Thanks for the report. We have recently removed the dependency on the GLU library entirely, so future versions of the benchmark will work fine without it.
