I made the mistake of upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 and can't seem to get the graphical client running.  Neither the released binary nor the binary I compiled myself will show the graphical interface.  The debug.log file indicates that at least the IRC communications are working.

Has anyone been able to run the graphical client on 11.04?

The deb package done by tuxsoul for 10.10 still works for me (but with some error that popup during launch)

Perhaps you need to re-install...Huh

The bitcoin client works on virtually any stable linux version... No matter what "release".

Yep, same problem here. Upgraded to Natty and now Bitcoin GUI doesn't come up anymore - neither in Unity nor in Gnome. Tried upgrading to 0.3.21 and recanning the blockchain but still no joy.

Bitcoind still shows my balance (fortunately!)

 Thanks for the heads up I was going to upgrade this week.
I filed a report with Ubuntu about this.

On Natty, I could get the Bitcoin client to show up in only Ubuntu classic (No effects) mode.  It seems there is a problem with compiz in 11.04.

Anyone else get burned with the upgrade? At first I all I could get was a black screen, but after a bit of mucking around, I could get to a classic desktop with an Nvidia driver that's active but not in use. It also boots up slower than with 10.10. I've been poking around the Ubuntu forums, but I'm still not sure what to do about it.

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

Yes, the gui stops coming up after the upgrade to 11.04 (Ubuntu Natty), unless I choose the Ubuntu Classic (no effects) option at the login screen.  

Reinstalling (deleting the folder and unpacking the tarball again) changed nothing.

Edit:  Here's the Launchpad bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/758398

The graphical client doesn't work with either unity or classic for me.

I think maybe it is time to switch from wxWidgets to Qt?

Everything seems to be working nicely now. I just had to go into classic mode and uninstall and reinstall the nvidia driver. Unity is pretty neat.

I went a bit further and stripped compiz out entirely, logout/login with Ubuntu Classic and all is good on 11.04 now.

I have no intention of dumping Unity solely to run bitcoin, and it appears from my experience and other reports that there is some problem between the two.

Can anyone suggest a workaround? Is anyone working on a fix?

I am having trouble running bitcoin on 11.04 x64.  I tried a few different packages, and the tar.gz from bitcoin.org, but none work for me.  I start the program, and nothing comes up (and no output to the console).

Any ideas?

Well, right now my workaround is to just use the CLI via bitcoind.

Workarounds/Ideas:

- Login with Ubuntu Classic
- Remove Compiz/Disable Compiz
- Use bitcoind

Did you try any/all of these?

I am quite sure this is a bug in bitcoin and not in Ubuntu since the same thing seams to happen with other window managers. See this bug report: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/128

This is a problem with wxWidgets, works fine if you compile with wxWidgets-trunk.  For those who cannot/will not do that, the bitcoin-gui 0.3.21 binaries are posted at: http://bitcoin.bluematt.me/bitcoin-nightly/ubuntu-11.04/.  Works with Ubuntu classic and the new crap.  Just download, right-click -> permissions -> check the "execute" box and be on your way.

Technical stuff:
For reference, this binary works fine on 10.10 as well, I suppose we should be building this binary by default instead.
Appears to be http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/13146, but doesnt work if you simply apply http://trac.wxwidgets.org/changeset/67496.  I probably didn't look into the matter far enough, but it works with trunk, so I don't really care to.
