You and me both pal. Im here under false pretences. I'm really a screwdrivers/hardware kinda guy who just plunges in until I get stuck and shout for help. I am no developer, never taken a single days software course in my puff.
That said, I know enough to know that if @happybeing has the same symptoms on Debian, but it works for you on Mint, then the issue must lie in the tiny differences between the distros.
I imagine Debian as the daddy, Ubuntu as the grown up son with a bit more polish and Mint as the incredibly cool grandson with amazing dress sense.
But until we know exactly what environment was getting used at MaidSafe maybe I am talking mince....
It has been known to happen...
Why does the code to make this dialog box
work on Mint but nit on Debian and Ubuntu. We also know it works on a Mac but I know nothing of these things. Its not a huge sample, I may be barking up the wrong tree but the fact that we seemed to need to install different dependencies may be a clue.@frabrunelle
can you tell is who else was working on this and what distro they were using?
Can @ben @hunterlester @bochaco @Krishna tell us if this could be related to this issue ?
