File Open/Save As dialogs are blank

• Apr 2, 2012 - 23:05

I just installed Musescore on Ubuntu 10.04 amd64 from the stable ppa ppa:mscore-ubuntu/mscore-stable. Mscore Help / About shows version 1.1 revision 4611.

When I select File / Save As, the save as dialog opens completely blank except for the titlebar. When I select File / Open, the file open dialog opens with just the top left corner correctly drawn - the rest of the dialog window is also blank. See the attached screenshot of the file open dialog. These errors are completely reproducible every time I open the dialogs.

Using the suggested fix for empty file save as dialog on Linux (i.e. executing "export QT_NO_GLIB=1" and then mscore) results in the save as dialog being correctly populated. However, if I try to save as either Lilypond or MusicXML format, the Save button changes colour when clicked, but the dialog doesn't close, and trying to dismiss it using either the Cancel button or the X in the titlebar does nothing. What happens is that after a few seconds, I get a msgbox telling me that the dialog is not responding, and offering the options of Force Quit or Wait. Wait leaves the dialog sitting on top of the Mscore window, and Force Quit terminates the whole Mscore application, not just the dialog.
