I'm running VMware Workstation 17 Player on a Kubuntu host. When I try to activate the 3D acceleration for my Windows 10 guest system it will instantly crash while booting.
There are possible solutions in other threads, I tried to set these settings in the vmx file (I can't find a config.ini on my system):
but nothing helps....VMWare Version:
VMware® Workstation 17 Player
Operating System: TUXEDO OS 2
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.104.0
Qt Version: 5.15.8
Kernel Version: 6.1.0-1009-tuxedo (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 20 × 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-12700H
Memory: 62.6 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU/PCIe/SSE2 (NVIDIA Driver Version: 525.85.05)
Product Name: TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro Gen7 (MK2)
Do I have to put those settings in another file? Am I at the wrong location? Or do I have to write it in another syntax because of the linux system?
Please help, I really need 3D acceleration in this system
Wow, that worked immediately! Thank you so much!
Just for my info: why are you adding params in a vmx-config file which I can't set in the gui? This was a very important parameter for me....I don't get it....
Choosing the right Vulkan device/driver should "just work" but in multi-GPU systems there are some subtleties (we examine device IDs, driver version numbers, etc). Also, there are external methods (like the VK_ICD_FILENAMES env var and perhaps the vkconfig tool) which can be used to select the GPU for any Vulkan application.
Like I said, we've improved this for a future release and you shouldn't need the vmx setting then. Sorry for the inconvenience.
