  1. I was looking forward to trying Flowblade 2.0 on Xubuntu 18.04.1 but it simply refuses to launch, just drawing the outline of a window before freezing.
    Any ideas as to what may be wrong?

  2. Hello, I found that flowblade’s haelp function does not work because the file /usr/share/flowblade/Flowblade/res/help/en/help.html is missing. Do you know where I can get the help files? thank you
