Default HelyxOS Importing .stl problems

I've been trying to get HelyxOS up and running as it seems to be a good alternative to manually modifying files.

I have it installed on xubuntu 13.10, and HelyxOS loads fine. I did have some trouble with the 'error loading VTK libraries' but that's solved now.

I have a simple cylinder saved as a .stl and .obj which I can view fine and work with in Openfoam and paraview, however when I click Import STL and choose the cylinder.stl, nothing happens. I'm sure there's a dialogue box that pops up for a very short time with red writing in it, but it flashes so quickly I'm unable to make out what's on it.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
