    I attempted this so many times that I cannot remember for certain which methods worked. But if I am remembering correctly, once I downloaded “aptitude” and ran that instead of “apt”, and on a separate attempt I downloaded the utopic versions (prior versions I think). If I can remember positively I will post more here for you.

    Yes, from inside a Virtual Machine. The problem I was having was under Software Sources > Additional Drivers did not detect NVIDIA. But since the VM isn’t accessing the graphics hardware this makes sense.

    I did go further in one of my attempts and when installing the Vrui toolkit I received errors that “libcheese”s and “libclutter”s had unmet dependencies. I did somehow manage a work around or a way to meet those requirements.

    An issue I had later with the Kinect was it was not being detected when I ran commands such as “lsusb” even when I attempted to pass it through the VM. Sometimes a USB thumb drive would make it through, but not always. Again, all of this is likely stemming from being run in a VM, which doesn’t work as you said. Too bad too, we’d hoped to demo the sandbox at a fair soon. We really appreciate that you placed instructions online for us all.

    After thinking, the next question I would like to ask (probably a better one too) is: What’s the best avenue towards a working AR Sandbox if starting from a Windows 8.1 OS?

    Any chance at a walk through video clip? Several errors occur as early as step 2 and would like to see how others, or you, are doing it? And will this work in Oracle VM VirtualBox?
