howto enable quartzgl?

Recommended Posts


Didn't work for me either... :)

I really want this to work!

I can't even look at movies...


It says when I try to manually enable it:

bash-3.2# sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Quartz2DExtremeEnabled true

2008-11-28 18:56:16.126 defaults[236:a0b] _CFGetHostUUIDString: unable to determine UUID for host. Error: 35



ANY ideas?

i had it enabled for a long time and wanted to give a try running without it. and guess what? it runs much much smoother without it enabled! my xbench score leveled down about 10 points but not on opengl,quartz test but on CPU test! xbench resoults highered a bit without it enabled. i then deciced to try geekbench to test the CPU... and guess what? i was higher with quartzgl disabled.yes.with disabled. my opinion is: apple has some resons to have it disabled by default. i don't really know but i will keep it disabled. Counter strike also runs faster via crossover with it disabled. strange but true

People are, understandably, confusing QuartzGL with Quartz Extreme and Core Image.


The fact is that QuartzGL is used automatically by applications that are designed to use it.


As you have discovered, there's absolutely no advantage to forcing it on for everything.

    • Not sure but I think Netinstall starting in 10.8 ? I need chek for confirmation ?
    • Il post purtroppo è diventato chilometrico  e mi dispiace, ma ho ancora qualcosa da chiedere nella speranza che qualcuno di voi di buona volontà riesca ad aiutarmi.  Ho qualche problema di ottimizzazione riguardante l'audio che ogni tanto inspiegabilmente non va dalle casse integrate impostato in config su 28 (che è quello che normalmente funziona sua sulle cuffie che con le casse) ma ogni tanto non va. Ed infine il bluetooh della scheda, adesso son funziona più ( (BrcmFirmwareRepo e BrcmNonPatchRAM2 in clover) e invece BTFirmwareUploader in L/E.). Magari c'è qualche errore nel dsdt o nel config.  Vi allego la cartella clover https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d7qfHs3KYEWANjtSlKyR29aEbgTFsytd Non so come mai ma da quando il forum ha cambiato server l'upload diretto da sempre errore  e anche il caricamento delle pagine è molto lento. Vi ringrazio per la disponibilità .
    • can Netinstall support media for os version? 10.6~10.13? Netinstall Mac OS X Snow Leopard Netinstall Mac OS X Lion Netinstall OS X Mountain Lion Netinstall OS X Mavericks Netinstall OS X Yosemite Netinstall OS X El Captian Netinstall macOS Sierra Netinstall macOS High Sierra   right?
    • read that post and it looks like it's not a fix for the black screen . I did add whatever green and lily to clover folder on the USB but no luck.   
    • this is why I suggest to you Default name for all Netinstall macOS High Sierra
