Hi ,

I installed Striata Reader on my father's 16.04 64-bit laptop several 
weeks ago when he was down here.  Same symptoms as you.  I ended up 
fixing it up by looking at the installed python code.  My memory of the 
exact problem/solution has faded - I think it was either an incorrect 
directory path in the code or a permission error, the fault of the 
installer I guess.

This reminded me that  he had said that he had the same problem on his 
home PC.
So I have just downloaded and installed it on my computer to see if I 
get the same problem again and it works with no problem now. So maybe 
they have fixed it.

What version are you using?  I downloaded striata-reader-2.23-1-amd64.deb

Hope this helps,
