Im trying to open my Blender program but I get the following error message:

Using Python version 2.4
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Im working in my Dell Laptop with Linux Ubuntu Breezy 5.01

you don't have opengl installed/it's not working. You need to make sure that you have either the accelerated graphics drivers installed, or that you have MesaGL. I can't tell you much more, unless you tell me what kind of system you're working on.

Probably missing a
Load "glx"
in your X config file.
