The `ImportError` you're encountering is indicating that the `` shared library, which is required for OpenGL support, is missing on your system. This issue is common on Linux operating systems, especially when you're trying to run applications that depend on OpenGL for graphics rendering. Here's how you can resolve the problem: For Ubuntu/Debian-based distributions, you can install the required libraries using the following command: ```bash sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx ``` For Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora distributions, the command will be: ```bash sudo yum install mesa-libGL ``` For Arch Linux or Manjaro, use the pacman package manager: ```bash sudo pacman -Syu mesa ``` Once you have installed the required package, try running your application again. It should be able to find `` and start without issues. If you are using a Docker container or any other form of virtualized environment, you might need to ensure that the base image has the necessary libraries installed. For example, in a Dockerfile, you could add the following commands: ```dockerfile FROM ubuntu:latest RUN apt-get update && \ apt-get install -y libgl1-mesa-glx ``` Remember to rebuild your Docker container after updating the Dockerfile. For Nvidia graphics card users, if the above doesn't work, you might need to install or reinstall Nvidia drivers, as they provide their own version of the `` library. Use the package manager to install the Nvidia drivers or download them directly from the Nvidia website. By resolving these dependencies, not only will you have fixed the immediate issue, but you're also ensuring that future users of the application on similar systems have a direct solution to the problem. It's important to note that the specific package and installation command can vary based on the Linux distribution and the version in use, so adapt the solution as necessary.
