Hello Everybody

I  use BlueGriffon, BlueFish and Kate for web page edition and gFtp for 
site updating
Today i tried to upgrade my BlueGriffon (I was using 1.5.2) and I 
reached a problem.

When I start the new release i get the message : *Your BlueGriffon 
profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible*

What i have done

  * I renamed my old release (mv bluegriffon bluegriffonOLD)
  * I removed the Griffon profil directory (rm -R .disruptive\
    innovations\ sarl )
  * I downloaded the new compressed tar file
    (bluegriffon-1.7.Ubuntu13.04-x86_64.tar.bz2) I'm running Kubuntu
    13.04 64bits
  * I ran tar command ( tar jxvf bluegriffon-1.7.Ubuntu13.04-x86_64.tar.bz2)
  * I started bluegriffon ( ./bluegriffon/bluegriffon) and got a pop up
    window with the error message

NB : All files and directories belong to my home user/group

Any help is welcome
