I install ros hydro and gazebo 1.9. When I run the gazebo command to start simulator it gives error.

Msg Waiting for master
Msg Connected to gazebo master @
Msg Publicized address: aaa
Error [] Unable to create glx visual
Warning [] Unable to create X window. Rendering will be disabled

I found several solution like "configure x11" ,but it doesn't help. How can I fix this problem?
