Driconf is a configuration applet for the Direct Rendering Infrastructure
(DRI). It allows customizing performance and visual quality settings of OpenGL
drivers on a per-driver, per-screen and/or per-application level.
Driconf is implemented in Python. It uses the GTK+ toolkit bindings and the
xdriinfo program (from the xdriinfo or xbase-clients package) to retrieve
configuration information from OpenGL drivers.
