I installed the beta on my Arch Linux 4.1.6 system. When I start it up, it shows the splash screen but crashes with the following error:

JRE Path: //opt/bitwig-studio/lib/jre
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

Aborted (core dumped)

Seems like a problem with the X Window System. Or the JRE, I'm not quite sure? Please help. Here's the error report. I've also emailed support about this, but I trust in the community :)

Thank you

Heiko from Bitwig solved this problem in less than 24 hours. I downgraded the package libxcb from version 1.11.1 to version 1.11 - now everything is good!

Thank you Bitwig for the amazing support.
