trying to run step 5 in introduction to tf tutorial rviz doesn't open and i get the following error

IBUS-WARNING **: Unable to connect to ibus: could not connect: connection refused. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

what isn't working?

UPDATE I deleted the ibus folder from .config/ and now i don't get an ibus warning BUT rviz still doesn't open

    ** (rviz:6145): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-ZMaEcTk69B: Connection refused

I'm not having a problem with the ibus warning anymore but now I just get a warning about accessibility bus. what is that?

RViz issues are typically caused by missing GPU drivers, faulty GPU drivers, or running in a virtual machine (or under WSL on Windows 10).

What sort of hardware do you have?

I'm using Xubuntu 16.04. I have a laptop that i dual booted with Windows and Xubuntu. Running Rviz through Xubuntu of course. Anyway to update the GPU? It has worked previously with my laptop but haven't gotten it to work this time around.
