I guess either it's based on a newer version of Centos and/or the repositories have changed their contents. I'm afraid I'm in the dark as much as you. The libraries loaded for me on the version of Amazon Linux I'm using. At this stage I'd resort to Google.

  You've been a great help. If I go Ubuntu, do I have to start from scratch with a new instance? 

  The funny thing is that I see the vm-display-X11 file

drwxr-xr-x 3 seasideuser seasideuser   4096 Jul 15  2010 vm-display-null
drwxr-xr-x 3 seasideuser seasideuser   4096 Jul 15  2010 vm-display-X11
drwxr-xr-x 3 seasideuser seasideuser   4096 Jul 15  2010 vm-sound-null
-rw-r--r-- 1 seasideuser seasideuser     28 Feb  5  2009 XDisplayControlPlugin.lib
drwxr-xr-x 3 seasideuser seasideuser   4096 Jul 15  2010 ZipPlugin

so I am confused....
