I cannot see use my USB device with EncryptPad's file browser. No problem with Ubuntu and all other apps. Only this app refuses to acknowledge the presence of USB flash pen
The issue occurs on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. EncryptPad (QT to be precise) normally integrates with the native file manager to browse files through the GTK2 platform theme plugin. However, this Qt version (Qt5.7) has a known issue:
GTK2 plugin libqgtk2.so is missing from the installation because the Qt team have moved to GTK3 and they could not package GTK3 in 5.7. The bug has been reported here
Quote from the link above:
This is really an issue - it took some time to figure out why the native file dialog is not shown anymore with Qt 5.7 under Linux Mint 17.3. I suggest to give others an official hint about this.
There are a few options:
- Wait until Qt 5.8 in which the problem should be fixed.
- Use AppImage
- Mount or link the USB drive directory to a more convenient place where it could be opened from the limited Qt file manager.
