Qgroundcontrol Black screen

#1

This is my first time using QGC.
I follow the tutorial https://docs.qgroundcontrol.com/en/getting_started/download_and_install.html#ubuntu-linux
Installation, I have used both methods, and they all installed successfully, but when I start QGC, it will turn black.


My OS is ubuntu16.04LTS.
The QGC I installed is v3.4.4.
Also I use Oracle VM VirtualBox v5.2.12.

My guess is that it has to do with the GPU drivers inside Virtualbox. Is there a reason why you use it in a VM and not native?

#3

When I open QGC for the first time, it can be opened, but it can’t be opened after I close it. Reinstall still can’t improve black screen.
Because I don’t have any extra computers at the moment to install Linux OS.

#4

I solved the problem. This is the display setting problem of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

#5

Ok, thanks for the feedback. Could you describe which setting for people having the same problem and reading this?

#6

Oracle VM VirtualBox settings “Settings / Display / Enable 3D Acceleration” must be turned off.
