I am trying to run TexMaker on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but every time I try to do so I get the following error:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load
the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)

I have tried the solution presented here but no luck.

The ldd command to resolve dependencies can be found here

and the strace output here

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
