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>
