Does not load, blank screen with title bar or zooms away

Running Linux Mint 17 and the default version
The older Mint packaged Cherrytree has been running fine for a long time using the default sqlite database.
Today it decided to play up. Either, if loaded from the command line with a file path and name, it would open a blank window. Or, when called from the menu, it would start and instantly disappear.
I spent a fair while today chasing this to no avail. I then installed the new version which did not immediately change the status. But as I write this, when I started it to get the version from the title bar, suddenly it was there!
I have no idea what caused the failure, or what caused its sudden correction. I had checked the .ctb file with sqliteman and deduced that the file was not corrupt.
Else of all the note-takers that I have tried, this is the nicest. I really don’t want to lose all my hard written notes, any idea of what might be behind this would be welcome.14 November 2016 at 15:15 #124080
This morning we are back with this issue and Cherrytree disappearing.
I note output when running from the command line:
inksi@anyte ~ $sudo cherrytree ~/linux_notes.ctb [sudo] password for inksi: sel node id=6, seq=1 ^CTraceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/cherrytree", line 72, in <module> f_main(args) File "/usr/bin/cherrytree", line 50, in f_main main.main(args) File "/usr/share/cherrytree/modules/main.py", line 222, in main gtk.main() KeyboardInterrupt Exception dbus.exceptions.DBusException: DBusException('Did not receive a reply.

In respect of the dbus comments I not an outstanding level 4 update on mint re dbus, but risky level 4 updates are not going to get casually implemented on my machine.
Hope this might provide a pointer.

You made a classical mistake: Starting a graphical program via sudo. This has nothing to do with Cherrytree. So far this forum is not the right place to correct this.
Please come to the official Forum for Linux Mint (link is in the welcome screen of Mint). Make a not in your post there about the post here, so will remember it. We will help you there.15 November 2016 at 19:45 #124083
Thanks for reply. You are correct that this is not a Cherrytree issue.
I may have had all 3 System Tray options selected which would include the ‘Start Minimised’ option.
The Cherrytree icon (AppIndicator, or applet)? that would appear to the top right of the panel when Cherrytree was ‘Quit’ no longer appears. Without this I think Cherrytree is thn starting minimised to an invisible AppIndicator.
So the real issue is now what has caused the AppIndicator to not show.
Adding a launch icon for Cherrytree at the left of the panel resolves the issue in a way.
I will join on the Mint Forum soonest to try and resolve this, better check first that this is a known issue already dealt with.
