Many applications use OpenGL for graphics rendering. VirtualGL is an application that uses the Linux system’s graphics hardware to render OpenGL graphics and then pass it to the remote X server. This method bypasses the GLX extension.

In order to run applications through VirtualGL:

Download and install VirtualGL or install it from a reporsitory:

eg.  sudo apt-get install virtualgl

eg.  yum install virtualgl

When executing a command, run: vglrun -c proxy <application>
