Light sources make the GUI remain black

Hi there,

I am using Gazebo in Ubuntu installed in a Virtual Machine. I have a dedicated Nvidia GPU that I managed to connect to the VM.

I noticed that including any light source in a .world file, the GUI remains completely black.

This happens if the world contains at least one link, for example a cylinder or simply a box.

However, if I run a .world containing only a light source and a ground plane, i.e.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sdf version="1.5">
<world name="default">

<!-- A global light source -->
<include>
<uri>model://sun</uri>
</include>

<!-- A ground plane -->
<include>
<uri>model://ground_plane</uri>
</include>

</world>
</sdf>


then I correctly visualize the ground plane in an enlightened environment, as you can see in the image below.

Any suggestion to fix this issue? Thank you in advance.

EDIT: with the command --verbose I get the following output message
