[IDV #NGL-557553]: IDV install on Linux



Greetings Donna!

I've ran across some posts where users of Java3D application have had issues 
with NVIDIA Quadro NVS cards. These issues seem to be fixed with a driver 
update. Would you mind going to the following location and try the latest 
drivers to see if this fixes the issue (since you have root, it's worth a shot).

http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_quadro_nvs_295_us.html

Also, you could download and try the latest java3d 
(https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/CDS-CDS_Developer-Site/en_US/-/USD/address@hidden).

I'll keep digging around, but please let us know if any of these solutions work.

Cheers!

Sean
