Greetings, Been enjoying Bitwig since day 1. However, since upgrading to 1.3.6 Linux, the File > "Save as..." menu option doesn't do anything, no dialog window or anything. The other export and save options (save as template, etc.) do have dialogs when selected. Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot this? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and still didn't make a difference. Thanks for any suggestions. This is a on a registered host machine. Version: 1.3.6 Revision: release/1.3 36618 Revision Id: b4bda29237448a40dc5ae1aeb3d2826975bf0371 Build date: Mon Jan 18 15:58:14 CET 2016 Build type: release Heap memory: 193 MB Native memory: 7 MB Streamed native memory: 0 bytes Shared memory: 128 MB Java Version: 1.8.0_66

I am running OpenSuse 13.2 64 bit. Running from command-line, and then trying save as, shows following error in the background: bitwig-studio JRE Path: //opt/bitwig-studio/lib/jre Error executing command zenity --file-selection --title "Save Project" --save --confirm-overwrite --file-filter "Bitwig Project | .bwproject | .bwsong | *.fls" --filename "/home/bofh/Bitwig Studio/Projects/": Cannot run program "zenity": error=2, No such file or directory at at com.bitwig.x11_windowing_system.X11FileDialog.DZv(SourceFile:150) at com.bitwig.x11_windowing_system.X11FileDialog.mfm(SourceFile:20) at Caused by: Cannot run program "zenity": error=2, No such file or directory at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start( at ... 3 more Caused by: error=2, No such file or directory at java.lang.UNIXProcess.forkAndExec(Native Method) at java.lang.UNIXProcess.<init>( at java.lang.ProcessImpl.start( at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start( ... 4 more

Looks like I needed to install Gnome zenity package. Installed it with Yast. Started Bitwig. Now Save As working. Weird that missing package didn't come up during the install of the rpm.
