It seems to be very naive question as I couldn't find anyone complaining about this. I downloaded tar ball of latest CodeXL 1.2.2484 and simply ran OpenXL shell script; the GUI opened and i clicked on Load the Teapot Sample. The project is loaded but i am getting this 'To run an application, select the run mode and run the application' message even after clicking on Debug >> Start Debugging. What can be the issue?
I am running this on Ubuntu 12.04 and I have Devastator (APU) and Cypress GPUs.
I have encountered the same issue, if I solve it I will post the answer here.
OK, start CodeXL from the terminal, that way you will be able to see some error messages.
In my case, it was missing libgtkglext-x11-1.0.so.0
so I did sudo apt-get install libgtkglext1-dev
then restarted CodeXL and the teapot example runs now.
I'm on Ubuntu 12.04, A10-6800K APU
