Failed to create hydra engine for viewport

Hi!

I’m trying to install Isaac Sim on a Linux desktop (Ubuntu 18.04) where it previously worked, but after a reboot I’m only getting a grey viewport and the error message “Failed to create hydra engine for viewport.”

Hereby the log file:
kit_20220713_152029.log (1.0 MB)

And what I see when opening Isaac Sim 2022:
Screenshot_Isaac_Error

nvidia-smi results into the following:

The specific GPU is a “GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER”, so that should be enough for Isaac Sim…

Can someone help me with fixing this problem?
Thank you!

It might be because your driver is very old:

@rosalie_va , were you able to resolve the issue?

@rthaker Not yet, unfortunately I do not yet have physical access to the desktop. Sometime in the upcoming 2-3 weeks I will (hopefully) have physical access which is when I can update the driver. I will post in this thread by then whether it helped!
