Kivy Install Help

I had previously successfully installed Kivy, GC, and the firmware, and had it running. However, I recently updated to Ubuntu 18.04, from Ubuntu 16.xx. Now, when I attempt to run GC, I get an error. The error message is below. Does anyone know of how to resolve this?

Clueless, but searching giggle.
Could to try if setting multisampling to 0 in the ~/.kivy/config.ini is a workaround?

Apparently I had to uninstall and re-install Kivy. I did a sudo apt-get remove python-kivy, followed by sudo apt-get install python-kivy. GC is now running again. Thanks @Gero!
