Actually...Try the following option to see if you are able to get the Mechanical interface to open..


If you are running Workbench on Linux and experience problems at startup or with the user interface or graphics displaying correctly, and you are running in accelerated graphics mode, you may need to relaunch Workbench using the -oglmesa flag to activate software rendering:

runwb2 -oglmesa

If Workbench detects that graphics problems are causing crashes, it automatically switches to software rendering. Workbench also uses software rending mode by default when running on a remote display, or on a local display if the hardware does not appear to be accelerated.

To revert to accelerated graphics mode, launch Workbench using the -oglhw flag:

runwb2 -oglhw
