Autodesk Meshmixer for linux works only on Ubuntu 14.04 and it is problematic to run in other Linux versions.

I ran into a problem on Ubuntu 17.04 with ~./Xauthority not existing. Found a solution here (, copied and pasted below

Rename the existing .Xauthority file by running the following command

mv .Xauthority old.Xauthority

xauth add ${HOST}:0 . $(xxd -l 16 -p /dev/urandom)

To view a listing of the .Xauthority file, enter the following

xauth list
