Run WebGL in Chromium Browser on PandaBoard

These are the steps to get up and running

  1. Install Ubuntu for OMAP4 on an SD card

  2. Boot from SD card and complete setup

  3. Install ubuntu-omap4-extras-graphics packages from the repository ppa:tiomap-dev/release

  4. Install chromium-browser package - at version 10.0.648.205 currently

  5. Reboot

  6. Run chromium-browser with the --use-gl=egl command line switch. The about:gpu page should show that a GPU is present. You can use a GPU accelerated canvas by opening page about:flags and setting GPU Accelerated Canvas 2D to enabled.

  7. Point to a site that has WebGL demos e.g. three.js

That’s all folks!
