Cura 3.3.1 not working correctly

cura (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Installed cura 3.3.1 from Ubuntu 19.04 repo and it does not show text correctly on buttons/menus (e.g. on first launch I cannot see agree/disagree/ok/cancel on the screen). If I ignore that and try to load a model, it reports that failed to load the file.

Previously I have installed cura downloading from Ultimaker website and that one worked correctly. (That was version 3.6 and now version 4.0 is available).

This is a new Ubuntu 19.04 install. Just tried to install with "sudo apt-get install cura" and accepted the default values.

Hints for those stuck with broken cura:

* there is a packaged release as AppImage (the official Linux release of cura) (I did not test if it works)

* I am building from source, see

This has been a long-time issue with the way Cura renders the UI.

We've finally gotten a (hopefully permanent) fix from upstream into Debian, which was already auto-promoted to the Ubuntu repos:
The fix will also be in the next upstream Cura release, but we decided to backport it so it will land in the next Debian stable release (which is already in soft-freeze).

Please reopen if this version doesn't fix it for you.
