Advanced DRI Configurator

adriconf (Advanced DRI CONFigurator) is a GUI tool used to configure open source graphics drivers. It works by setting options and writing them to the standard drirc file used by the Mesa drivers.


The main features of the tool are:

  • Automatic removal of invalid and unsupported options.
  • Options whose value is identical to the system-wide value or the driver's default value will be ignored.
  • System-wide application options with redundant options will be removed automatically.


To build from source you can use the following commands:

git clone
cd adriconf
mkdir build-dir
cd build-dir
cmake ..
sudo make install


To add a new language or to improve a existing one, you can edit the po files located under po/ dir. To add a new translation use the following command (for example for German):

msginit -i adriconf.pot -o de.po --locale=de

To update an existing translation from the pot file you can use the folowing:

mv de.po de.po~
msgmerge -o de.po de.po~ adriconf.pot

To update the pot file itself you can run the following:

intltool-update --pot --gettext-package=adriconf

Please note that many text shown in the application are from mesa directly, mainly the option descriptions. Therefore if you see any missing translation you will need to add it to the mesa project itself.
