Hi, I just installed GEANT4 10.3. Previously I used GEANT4 10.2.2 without any problem. With the new version, I systematically get the message "This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in ""." and no visualisation pops up. For example, here is the complete message with exampleB1.

delaune@localhost:~/B1/build$ ./exampleB1 Available UI session types: [ Qt, Xm, GAG, tcsh, csh ] This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Abandon

I use a compiled version of Qt 5.6.2, the same version that I used with GEANT4 10.2.2 without this issue.
