Dear Alex,
Yestoday occasionally I found that Xmanger can be used to display the results on a remote HPC, so I tried to visualize my results with Xmanger, in that case, I do not need to download the large LAMMPS dump file. After extracted OVITO on the HPC and connected to the HPC with Xshell, I used ./ovito to evoke OVITO, however, it failed with the following errors:
Code: [Select]
Qt: XKEYBOARD extension not present on the X server.
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
I found that it is OK if I use evince to display a PDF or eog to display a jpg file with Xmanger on the HPC, so I think probably my problem is relevant to OVITO. Due to the limited knowledge of Linux, I do not know how to sovle this even with lots of search with Google. Could you please tell me how to fix this problem?
By the way, I think the advantage of running OVITO on the HPC and displaying the result by something like Xmanager is that we do not need to download the huge dump files, we only need to transfer the result of the remote displayer, it seems faster. However, I only found Xmanger which only supports Windows can do this job, is there any possible solutions on Linux platform like Ubuntu? And I am just starting to try this method out, any commet would be much appreciated!
Thanks very much in advance!

Support Forum / What is the function of Ovito.conf at ~/.config/Ovito?

Dear Alexander Stukowski and everyone,
Occasionally I found that there is a file named Ovito.conf at location ~/.config/Ovito. Could you please tell me what is the function of this file? It seems the information of customized modifier is stored in this file. Maybe it can be used to save personal configurations when one tries to move to a new computer. Please tell me more about this file.
Thanks very much in advance!

Support Forum / Graphic card and type of rendering pictures
« on: December 30, 2016, 02:27:49 AM »
Hello Dr. Stukowski and everyone,
I have two questions.
1. What kind of graphic card do I need if I use OVITO to render pictures and movies? I mean integrated graphic card or dedicated graphic card? And what is level needed? Better graphic card only speeds up the process or can offer a higher quality? Could you please give me some suggestions if I want to buy a new laptop or PC?
2. Is that possible to add some types of vector graphics to render pictures? For example pictures in eps or pdf format.
Thanks very much in advance!

Best Regards

Hello Dr.Alexander Stukowski and everyone,
My questions are:
1. How can I include the axis tripod in the rendered pictures? I want to use it to indicate the direction in my simulation.
2. If I want to output my selected particles together with a (111) plane in my picture, what should I do? It seems the `slice modifier` only gives lines of the boundary of the plane. I'd like to have a full plane. And it's much better if I can change the color of it.
Any help would be much appreciated!
