This might as well be an Ubuntu bug, I do not recall getting the same error with Ubuntu 12.04.
The main panel and organizer launches ok, but builder fails with the error below.

Regards, Olav

Starting ECCE ... please wait
The program 'builder' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
 (Details: serial 1937 error_code 11 request_code 154 minor_code 24)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Hi Olav,

This must be an OpenGL related issue since the other apps are starting. What version of Ubuntu are you now running? If I have a chance, I can install it and try to duplicate/debug the issue.

But, my immediate recommendation is to try building ECCE from the source code distribution. It's pretty much an automated process and well documented. That usually clears up any issues related to shared libraries we distribute with ECCE interacting (poorly) with the libraries, etc. distributed with the operating system. I know in past years I've seen this issue, but I don't recall the exact solution so that's why I'm thinking it must be one of the typical problems with library incompatibilities.

Best regards,
