Question / Help Dell Studio 540 Solus Help Required


New Member
Hey everybody, hope you're all good.

I'm having issues opening OBS after switching from Windows 7 64bit to Linux. I'm currently using an old Dell Studio 540 which could run OBS without any issues on Windows, however due to the age of the system and performance issues with other software applications I decided to switch to Linux. I'm a complete novice when it comes to Linux, but I'm determined to make it work, however I've downloaded OBS on Mint 19 and Solus, currently using Solus, and it just won't open. The error message I receive is..........

Failed to initialize video. Your GPU may not be supported or your graphics drivers may need to be updated.

When I check my graphics card in Solus, it's coming up with G45/G43 Express Chipset, it's not picking up the ATI Radeon 3450 that I believe is also in there?? Is this why OBS opened when using Windows and now is failing to open on Linux?? Any help is greatly appreciated as I've been battling with this for over a week now, and haven't really got anywhere.

Cheers :)
