I am trying to install the DNA-Analyzer Promethease but I am running into a few issues. After following the advice in How can I install a .bin file? I got the Promethease executable to run but it looks like the GUI is corrupted. Instead of characters I only see squares.
This is the corresponding output when running Promethease from a terminal:

How can I fix these issues and get Promethease to work properly?
