I have installed Electric VLSI 8.10 software from the Ubuntu Software Center and it works perfect. It shows 3D view of IC layouts.
Now I want to use its updated version Electric 9.03. It's available here (including electric free software extras).
It works, too. But unfortunetly, now 3D view doesn't show up.
I have been trying it for a month or so but to no avail. I will really appreciate your help.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04.
java -version outputs:
java version "1.7.0_10" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_10-b18) Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 23.6-b04, mixed mode)
Here are a couple of screenshots illustrating the problem:

No 3D view menu items in Electric 9.03:
