Transparent GUI when running ABAQUS CAE

I am running the ABAQUS CAE (6-14.1) on a laptop with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The application launches but I get the following list of errors.

*******Begin: List of Error Messages**********  X Error: code 2 major 154 minor 3: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation). X Error: code 169 major 154 minor 5: GLXBadContext. X Error: code 0 major 154 minor 26: 0. X Error: code 169 major 154 minor 4: GLXBadContext.  Warning: Your system need to be reconfigured to allow OpenGL rendering to a pixmap or you will only be able to print to raster formats.  *******End: List of Error Messages********** 

As mentioned above the ABAQUS CAE GUI does launch but results in a "translucent" screen and I cannot make out the text or graphics (See below screenshot), and hence cannot work with the software.

Transparent GUI when running ABAQUS CAE

OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (64-bit) Hardware: Dell Inspiron N5110; Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz x4;  Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 card; Intel Sandybridge Mobile 

Thank you for your help in advance!

It turns out that I get rid of the transparency problem when I execute the following command on my laptop (I found the solution here (no. 3 in the list): http://imechanica.org/node/13804))

env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 /home/XXXXXX/ABAQUS/6.14-1/code/bin/abq6141 cae

ABAQUS CAE succesfully opens, but I run into a new problem! I see two "floaters" on top my CAE GUI (Transparent GUI when running ABAQUS CAE

). These "floaters" are residual graphics from the underlying terminal window (they include the text "out of range for" in the attached figure). I would like to get rid of these "residual graphics" since they are in the way and interfere with my work on the GUI.

I also see same errors on the Linux terminal window as before. I am also copying and pasting the error messages again below for clarity.
