GameWindow not working on Ubuntu 11.04 + nVidia

Project:The Open Toolkit library
Category:bug report

I get this Exception on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit with nVidia closed source drivers.
It worked on 10.10.

System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for OpenTK.Graphics.GraphicsMode ---> System.PlatformNotSupportedException: Please, refer to for more information.

I had exact the same problem when I yesterday installed Xubuntu 11.04 x32 to VM (virtualbox), installed
Quest additions, and got that "OpenTK.Graphics.GraphicsMode ---> System.PlatformNotSupportedException:".
Installing mesa-common-dev packet fixed the problem.

[edit] mesa-common-dev isnt needed, but libx11-dev

Depends which platform (how you initialize GameWindow) you trying to use. But i installed libgl1-mesa-dev, and it helped as well.

This should now be fixed in OpenTK 1.1 beta1.
