Thanks for letting us know about this, and I'm sorry for any trouble caused by this issue. I'm not certain what could be causing this problem based on the error message. Could you post a link to a CPU result from your device on the Geekbench Browser so that I can take a closer look at your device's setup?

Here's my third attempt at replying to this discussion. So far, the comments are not appearing in the discussion. I don't understand why. But here's my third and last attempt to give you the URL you asked for.

Thank you. I'm looking into this issue now, though I would like to ask for some additional details to help us investigate more effectively. Could you let me know what Compute devices / graphics cards your system has, and if your graphics drivers are up to date? If they are not, that might be the cause of this issue.
Regardless, I will let you know if I can find any more information to get your benchmarks up and running.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention. I read the libopencl man-page, and it says there should be a directory "/etc/OpenCL/vendors". However, /etc/OpenCL does not exist on my system. Perhaps this is indicating that some additional package needs to be installed? Not sure...
If the problem is just that Ubuntu doesn't support OpenCL out of the box, then may I suggest:
1. a better error message, with a link to the next item.
2. a knowledge-base article about what to do about this error message--i.e. how to install OpenCL.
3. A note on the download page that you will need to install OpenCL.

Thanks for providing so much detail. You will need to install some tools to allow OpenCL to run on your machine. Intel provides the resources you need on their website here, along with some instructions on their forums which may be useful here. After getting OpenCL set up on your system, the Geekbench benchmark should work without issue.
