Martin considered EGL as the default, see https://blog.martin-...as-the-default/. I don't think it is easy to say which is the best choice, only for you it is clear cut since the graphics error answer  that ;)

Hi to all; I've 2 systems:

1) PC Desktop with cpu intel 4771, nVidia GTX 660, 16 GiB ram. 
2) An old laptop "Acer" con cpu Athlon 64x2 @ 1,9 GHz, Radeon HD 3200, 3 GiB Ram.

 

 

With PC "1" i use plasma-5 without troubles with "GLX" with nvidia-drivers.

 

With the laptop, using "glx" i've graphical errors; instead if I use "egl" all seems to work fine.

 

But ... what is the best choiche ?

 

"glx" or "egl" ?

 

Thanx for answers :)
