Pixie has suddenly been throwing up this message:
./test.rib (12): Failed to find out device "framebuffer"
Line (12) is: Display "Image" "framebuffer" "rgba" # render image to buffer
I'm using Ubuntu Linux 9.04. This all worked well enough earlier today.
Now I can't render anything to screen. What's going on here? Thanks.
I fixed it.
I tried to recompile Pixie from source. It said that it was unable to find X11 (scary). So I installed xorg-dev: sudo apt-get install xorg-dev
That took a while, but then Pixie recompiled and installed without a hitch. It's rendering once again! I still have strange errors on the surfaces of objects when rendering with Ambient Occlusion...very confusing. Wish it would go away.
