This most likely doesn't happen anymore with trunk. "Open layouts folder" has changed a bit to use xdg-open, see bug #1322368. FWIW, I don't get any errors here.

If you would like to test, get the latest version from our snapshot PPA at

There's no package for Vivid yet, though. Francesco, would you mind to add one?
