Creating and connecting to a remote desktop session

Bluehive 2.5 now supports Remote Visualization through FastX. While any FastX Session should be able to handle most rendering using software, the Mate Session 3D Bookmark will leverage a GPU to provide 3D acceleration. See our FastX Documentation.

Any application launched through the Desktop Menu should automatically leverage the gpu, however if you want to launch a custom application from the terminal with 3D support, you can use the vglrun-wrapper command before the application.
