Warning: There was a problem creating an OpenGL feedback context for printing.
If you encounter any problems with printing, verify that indirect GLX context
creation is enabled on your X server. For more information on indirect / direct
GLX context and how to enable indirect GLX context creation, see Knowledge Base
article QA00000043316

The issue is that on some graphics devices Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Viewer may fail when hardware acceleration is turned on. To mitigate the issue, you can turned off hardware acceleration which may have some performance degradation for the graphics performance. This can be done by simply

% abaqus cae --mesa

ABAQUS maintained a list of Graphics Devices which has passed the test and you may want to take a look
