    I have upgraded to the latest PD 16 on my iMac today and updated the its drivers for my Pop!_OS linux 20.04 VM (based on Ubuntu 20.04), and here is what I got from the OpenGL versions and the error message of Blender:

    Code:
    granville@pop-os:~$ dkms status
    parallels-tools, 16.0.0.48916, 5.4.0-7634-generic, x86_64: installed (original_module exists)

    OpenGL shading language version string: 3.30
    OpenGL context flags: (none)
    OpenGL profile mask: compatibility profile
    OpenGL extensions:
    
    granville@pop-os:~$ blender --version

    granville@pop-os:~$ blender

    Error! Unsupported graphics card or driver.
    A graphics card and driver with support for OpenGL 3.3 or higher is required.
    The program will now close.
    
    So what's going wrong?

    Hi, seems that Parallels Desktop 16 still needs some work regarding linux guest OS and OpenGL 3.3 full support. Obviously the developers have a lot to do when a new version is released, this is the point when the bugs arise :). Please report this application to the list that Parallels asked to fulfill in order to have full OpenGL support.
    Thank you
