I had the same problem with:
Windows 8 host --> VMware 12.1.1 --> Ubuntu 16.04 guest
Gazebo 7.5

I solved it with the following environmental variable presumably shrinking down the graphics instruction set to OpenGL2.

$ export SVGA_VGPU10=0

Gazebo starts now and runs compared to the not 3D accelerated way pretty smooth on a T460p if the resolution of the VM guest system is not too high (<< 4K).

To make the change permanent use:

$ echo "export SVGA_VGPU10=0" >> ~/.profile

Sideote: If you'd add it to ~/.bashrc starting gazebo from gui or other terminals than bash would still be broken.

The entire idea is from Hugo Rodde, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/stellarium... .
