VirtualBox, Ubuntu, 3D acceleration error
Join Date: Jun 2014

I have installed VirtualBox 4.3.12 and Ubuntu (2014-02-04) as well as guest additions and I am having some problems.
I am working with VB and OpenFoam for the first time so I would appreciate some help from the experts.
Here is the problem:
Everything is OK, until I try to run one sample tutorial. When trying to open paraFoam I get this error:
Anyone knows what is causing this ? Keep in mind that I am completely new to OpenFoam and VB/linux.
ps: before I didn't get this error when 3D acceleration was off. But OpenFoam requested I should turn this option on and since then I don't know how to fix it.
edit: also, I should point out I have installed guest additions. There was an error during the installation process ( I have stupidly canceled it) If I try to reinstall it its a success but I still get this mouse/keyboard notifications about mouse/keyboard integration.
Thx for help!

Greetings TheRocketMan and welcome to the forum!
I don't use VirtualBox myself, but the experience I've seen from other users is that the 3D hardware acceleration inside the virtual machines usually doesn't work as intended.
In addition, if you're using Ubuntu and using the default desktop interface, then it's an added problem.
Therefore, the three suggestions I have for you are as follows:
