Are you running 32bits or 64bits version ?
If 64bits, do you have the ia32-libs package installed ?

Hello Gwendal,

I run the 64bits version and no the ia32-libs package is not installed (and was not uninstalled by me)

Did you try to install the ia32-libs package to see if it corrects the problem ?

No, i dont need/want all dependances of ia32-libs (about 248 Mo) if not neccesary

Well, if I asked, it's because I think it's necessary...

Actually the correct correct package seems to be libgl1-mesa-glx.
If it's already installed, try reinstalling it.

Hi there, I'm running Wheezy 64, and I fix it doing:

ln -s /usr/lib/mesa-diverted/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

but now I can't see the mouse icon in "DraftSight's CAD"
