running CE 2017.01 on Ubuntu 16.04

Running CE 2017.0 on Ubuntu worked well enough (when the correct things were run as root). However running CE 2017.01 on Ubuntu 16.04 is proving more of a challege.


on running ./Setup script:

 

[CityEngine 2017.1 Setup Error]
OpenGL not detected.

 

It needed glxinfo:

 

sudo apt install mesa-utils

 

The next hurdle is is getting flex to run - any ideas? During the setup script, it doesn't seem to like to install FNP ("FNP service was not successfully installed on this system"). My attempts at hacking on /service/install_fnp.sh failed (couldn't run FNPLicensingService, even after skipping fuse check). 

 

Installing FNP from the "OLD" folder seemed promising, but didn't seem to allow me to run CE - I still get a "service not installed" dialog when starting CE...
