Comment 9 for bug 1307746

Having set up Kubuntu 14.04 at 2014-08-29, doing also:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
i do get the interface to pitivi, but no buttons, like + to import clip, no Timeline!
It shows however the text: Import and some icon, looking like a page of paper.

Start with sudo pitivi in teminal:
tuxator@tuxolino:~$ sudo pitivi
