Problem installing package from packages.txt

For my project, I need to install the OpenGL package via the command

apt-get install python-opengl

So I created a packages.txt file with given packages:

python-opengl

But during deployment, I get the following error.

Hi @RajK853, welcome to the Streamlit community!! :wave:

python-opengl is not a Linux package. Did you mean to install PyOpenGL, the Standard OpenGL bindings for Python? If so, you should include it in your requirements.txt file:

PyOpenGL
PyOpenGL_accelerate

If you’re thinking of Mesa, an open source 3D computer graphics library that provides a generic OpenGL implementation in Linux, then include the following in your packages.txt:

mesa-utils
libgl1-mesa-dev
freeglut3-dev

Best, :balloon:

Thanks @snehankekre for the help.

Adding the packages you mentioned in the packages.txt worked for me :slightly_smiling_face:
