Bug Report OBS Fails to Start due to not being able to find QT plugin "XCB"


New Member
I was about to record a video for upload to YouTube, but when I went to start OBS, it didn't do anything. I attempted to launch OBS with a terminal, which gave this error:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)

I have search around for a fix for this problem, without any luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Actual Computer. I have two hard drives, both have same linux version installed. When launching from SSD it outputs the error, with old hard drive it launches perfectly. I have a GTX 1050 ti running driver version 384.130.
