Which VirtualBox package did you install (exact package name please)?

Please attach your /etc/apt/sources.list here.

Attached is my sources.list.

I have tested both virtualbox '2.2.4-47978_Ubuntu_jaunty' (using 'apt-get install virtualbox-2.2') and 'virtualbox-3.0_3.0.0_BETA1-48728_Ubuntu_jaunty_amd64.deb' found in the beta download section. Both display the exact same symptoms.

This issue does not appear if I install the Intrepid version of the package on Jaunty.

Which Qt version do you have installed in /usr/local? The Ubuntu packages don't install in /usr/local but in /usr. I'm quite sure this (an incompatible version of Qt4) is the reason for your problem.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to worksforme

Closing because this is definitely not a VBox bug. Make sure no libraries from /usr/local are used.
