 qemu-system-x86_64: Display spice is incompatible with the GL context

The pc is using a nvidia gpu.

How to get a better understanding of whats wrong?
How to adjust the GL context to get compatible?


quickemu --vm ubuntu-22.04.conf --display spice

Adding --display spice worked for me. Thank you!


can you mark it as a solution, if discord lets you… sometimes it doesn’t,

I cannot set any solution …

yeah, i think you need a certain level of reputation to do it… which to me seems a bit silly.

I’m not entirely sure, but I think only specific categories have the “solution” button. My other topic under “learn” has it for example.
