My Mathematica is not launching properly (I run it on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). Here is the screenshot of the error message.

enter image description here

I've tried the following suggestions :

i) -cleanstart
ii) ~/.mathematica and even 
iii) reinstalled it.

But none of the above is woking. Can anyone please help me?

Have you tried mathematica -cleanstart? – Öskå Jun 9 '14 at 15:17
Yes. But showing the same error message. – Biswajit Jun 9 '14 at 15:20
Have you reinstalled? – Öskå Jun 9 '14 at 15:25
Still I haven't tried that option. – Biswajit Jun 9 '14 at 15:31
It's quite easy to reinstall on Linux. See here for instructions around uninstalling. – Öskå Jun 9 '14 at 15:33
