Problem: Starting Canopy 1.7.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 fails silently.
Cause: Ubuntu 16.04 does not include a library needed for Canopy's GUI to run.
Solution: Install this missing library by executing the following in Terminal:
sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0
If Canopy still will not run after installing this library, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
