1 Make sure you have the latest Raspbian Jessie :

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade
sudo rpi-update

2 In Menu\Preferences\Raspberry Pi Configuration :

Set GPU memory to 64Mb

3 Install the experimental OpenGL Driver, sound & glxgears demo

sudo apt-get -y install xcompmgr libgl1-mesa-dri && sudo apt-get -y install libalut0 libalut-dev && sudo apt-get -y install mesa-utils

4 Enable ‘GL Driver’

sudo raspi-config

This will start the config utility. Select ‘Advanced Options’, then select ‘GL Driver’, then select ‘Enable’, then select ‘Yes’ to reboot and enable the driver.

5 Test driver using glxgears


This should run at about 60 fps.
