> Visualizer is always a fragile part of NS-3.  If it doesn't show up, then something wrong with NS-3, installed python modules, or something else.  It is known to work on Ubuntu 12.04 with the instruction on the website, but I cannot say why it is not working.  May be something with installation of the template scenario... I'm not sure.
