Openboard does not use my Nvidia GPU

I'm stumped.
Any ideas or comments?
Anyone else have this problem?

Hi,
This is unfortunately a limitation of the libraries used by OpenBoard. When OpenBoard (or rather, Uniboard as it was called then) was first created, the Qt libraries that are heavily used throughout the application did not support GPU acceleration.
Since then, Qt has come out with newer libraries that do support hardware acceleration, but using them would require a huge overhaul of the entire codebase... Sadly there is no plug-n-play solution to supporting hardware acceleration.

OK. Thanks for the confirmation.
I was convinced it was an Nvidia driver problem.
