Installing URSim on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Has anyone gotten URSim to work on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 64 bit? URSim is saying “no controller”, see attached pictures. I’ve successfully installed URSim on 16.04 LTS with the same process, so I’m guessing its an compatibility error with the newer version.
I’ve used the guide found here: https://plus.universal-robots.com/getting-started/installing-ursim-in-linux-for-urcaps-development/
I’ve looked in the urcontrol.log file, and getting an error saying:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
what():  PThread::start FATAL: Cannot spawn thread. Error code: 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)

I also had some issues using URSim on Ubuntu 18.04. I’m now running the simulator in a Ubuntu 16.04 docker container. If someone has it working on 18.04, that would be easier, but perhaps you can use docker as a work-around.
