Salome_Meca V2019.0.3_Ubuntu 16.04 Installation Issues

Greetings Forum.

We cannot find a successful method for getting the last two version of SMECA to install and run on 16.04 (both V2019.0.1-2 and V2019.0.3 fail).  We have tried all of the tricks which worked for V2019.0.1-1 - but none resolve the issue.

Has anyone else encountered the same issue and (hopefully) solved it?  See below for copy/paste of the error codes.

My guess is that the errors relate to newer versions of Python and QT which perhaps do not play well with 16.04.  Short of upgrading to 18.04 (and causing numerous incompatibility issues with other SW installs) we are stumped.

Any hints are appreciated.

Re: Salome_Meca V2019.0.3_Ubuntu 16.04 Installation Issues

Hi there,

Can you elaborate further on the target system for the installation ? Is it a physical OS or a virtual one ?

GL problems are often encountered if the graphics card is not available (like from within a virtual machine). Can you try to launch  glxinfo and share the output?
