Projucer crashes upon startup on Kali Linux.. Any fix?



When starting the Projucer bundled with the JUCE 5 Linux download, I get an error talking about WebKit and hardware acceleration in the command line and the program immediately crashes. This occurs when using the Projucer under a live Kali Linux USB environment with persistence with a GTX 1080. Anyone else familiar with this issue?

Edit: the specific error is the following:
symbol lookup error: undefined symbol: webkit_settings_set_hardware_acceleration_policy


A simple “fix” might be to compile the Projucer yourself. The source code is in extras/Projucer, with a Linux Makefile in extras/Projucer/Builds/LinuxMakefile.


We’ve fixed this now on develop and we will be re-uploading the linux binaries shortly.
