I solved the problem. You need to instal the proprietary driver for video card .

Re: not installing the bb10 simulator in ubuntu 12.04

I have found a way to slove this.Before we countered this error,there were two steps to make some choice.first one shows "1,2,3,4" something else,maybe choose the partition.wo use default profile ,the one.second one notices us there are six choice ,default one is 1.when we choose it ,error happens.we can choose others .when I choose the six ,I can start the simulators.


maybe ,samrtphone resolution ratio is so higher than our notebook.we should chooose one accordance with our PC's.so,some one happens,others don't counter this problem.Because we have diffrent PCs.

Re: not installing the bb10 simulator in ubuntu 12.04

Yes, this worked for me too. I was already using a proprietary NVIDIA driver (on an ubuntu 14.04 ).

It seems only the 'safe mode' options are working.
