You can check which needed files are missing for vm-display-X11.so with:

$ ldd vm-display-X11.so

and search for packages that have these files at 

Also, ensure that you have added the i386 architecture and installed 
i386 versions of multiarch-support, libx11-6 and libglu1-mesa libraries

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install multiarch-support
$ sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386
