glxinfo | grep "OpenGL" on Terminal.
For virtual camera support, you need the v4l2loopback-dkms module installed. You can install it with the following command:
sudo apt install v4l2loopback-dkms

You will need to install the kernel headers package of your actual kernel beforehand or the module will not be completely installed.
