Trying to launch in linux - GLXBadRenderRequest
I'm trying to run mricrogl on my linux cluster and am getting the following error when I try to launch it.

> The program 'MRIcroGL' received an X Window System error.
> This probably reflects a bug in the program.
> The error was 'GLXBadRenderRequest'.
> (Details: serial 676 error_code 160 request_code 148 minor_code 1)
> (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
> that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
> To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to
> change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from
> your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

RE: Trying to launch in linux - GLXBadRenderRequest
What version are you attempting to run? 
  I would first try version 1.2.20190410 which uses OpenGL 3.3. This modern version ensures all the required extensions. 
 If that does not work, try 1.0.20190410 which uses OpenGL 2.1.

 If that does not work, type "glxinfo" in the terminal to check details on your OpenGL support.

 You can fix most issues by reading through the trouble shooting page.
