Removed Silo downloaded from the App Store and downloaded the 2.3 trial for Mac from nevercenter.com. Unfortunately, it still crashes on every attempt to start it. It did however, show a register window that I dismissed and then a glimpse of the Silo interface. Then it crashes.

One thing I'd like to see are bezier curves and an extrude along curves tool.
Also an extrude steps type thing might be good where you can type in extrude 5 steps and a distance for example.
Any chance of actually getting some kind of history type stuff in there?

Hello dear mikefarny, I installed LINUX KUBUNTU now, really fresh over a new partition. Now I have the same black windows in silo ...

What can I do, what can we do? I think it's a problem with qt5 and kubuntu?

Any idea for me and other users?

I installed also the recomended NVIDIA Driver. Hope that someone can help

Wow, an actual update! I'll be trying this as soon as I'm able.

I have black Windows also in UBUNTU :( I don't know why, I mailed it to your support-mail account, dear nevercenter-readers.

Which ubuntu version? Any other changes from the usual besides just using the binary nvidia drivers?

Hello dear Mike, I use Ubuntu 14.04 64bit, the newest version. Black screens I have also with the free opensource driver. I did have the same also with Lubuntu and Kubuntu ..

I changed nothing after the installation. But maybe there are some fragements from Kubuntu in Ubuntu? Because I used the same partitions / and I didn't have made a format of these. But ubuntu runs fine, only not with silo ...

End the gear test (glxgears) was also fine, with fast rotations.

In Windows runs the new silo 2.3 fine (I have a dual-boot-system).

An update(!), great news, I'm back to Silo after a very long time! No problems so far on my MAC (OSX 10.9.4)

I'm just wondering now how many of these posts from 'users' are from fake accounts. Here is a grab from nevercenter's fb page where there is a comment from a 'user' but NC have forgotten to switch accounts. That's pretty unprofessional and embarrassing. Unless there is a simple explanation of course......

Who cares, they are just a small team of developers. You are just being petty.
But it is funny!

I'm in facobook too, but why I should use in facebook my realname? So I'm a facebookfake too ... but it means nothing, because I'm a Silo-User since some years

Can any of you who experienced the black-screen issue on Ubuntu (or derivatives thereof) who haven't yet been in contact with Nevercenter support PM me or email support@nevercenter.com? We have an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS specific build that we're testing to see if it fixes the issue.

I tried for the life of me to reproduce the issue, but I couldn't ever get it to trigger. So the build is a tiny bit of a shot in the dark, but we'd like to not force people to run Silo in a CentOS or Fedora VM if their primary is Ubuntu.

I installed Fedora on a extern USB-HDD, but I did have there also black-window issues. Is this maybe also an issue with my hardware also/only?

Okay, today I did get a mail from Stephanie from your company, I will try that build
But I couldn't dowload it from google, I will try it tomorrow - its a google problem ...

ps. Maybe it will run okay, if I will spend next weeks a new GPU - I will replace my weak Geforce GTX 550Ti with a new GTX970 ... (not for silo, because silo don't need a powerfull GPU, but for other grafic tools I need more power & vram).

You also got it on Fedora (20 I assume)? I'm beginning to wonder if Silo is doing something odd with OpenGL that is tripping up on certain hardware. I'll keep investigating, although it's hard because I simply haven't been able to trigger the black screen issue at all on any of my setups.

I'll ask Stephanie what happened with that comment, because that does look pretty bizarre. I don't have any access to the Silo3D facebook account (heck, I don't even have a facebook login for myself), but it's probably just a comment from a user that came in via email that she was quoting and didn't properly attribute. She's definitely not one to pull shenanigans.
