unable to use buttons on title screen

Running GSB on Ubuntu precise pangolin
Bought the game via Ubuntu Software Center

GSB did run just fine for a couple of times. No issues. Then suddenly I got stuck on the starting screen and now I can’t play anymore. I do have sound, a mouse cursor and I can leave the game using Esc, but I can’t acces any menu option. To be specific, I can’t click on any menu button on the starting screen.

Don’t know if this is related, but I seem to have version 1.56 and the game did not update automaticaly and I can’t find a patch. I posted this issue here:http://positech.co.uk/forums/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=7537&p=59616#p59616

I’m a GSB noob and new to this forum, so apologies if I missed something obvious.

Many thanks in advance,

Still hoping for some support …

Something must have changed on your system… My guess is an update to Unity has caused things to not work correctly. Try switching to unity 2d and see if that solves the issue… If it does, file a bug w/ Canonical against the unity3d component.

As for the version #, the latest linux version is only 1.56.

I’ll try that. Many thanks for your answer!
