Enable WebGL in Google Chrome under Linux

posted 21 Oct 2012, 06:39 by Ian Gilliam
You have to run chrome with two command line parameters.  Quickest way to do this is to use ALT F2 key combination to enter the following:

google-chrome --enable-webgl --ignore-gpu-blacklist

Once in chrome you can then check if it's working using:

chrome://gpu

in the omnibar.  Firefox has webgl switched on so you can use Firefox to visit sites that want it rather than messing with chrome.
