Waveforms do not display in Mixxx on Ubuntu

Hi all,
I'm playing with Mixxx. It plays music and shows the little waveform, song name, time and beat, but does not show the big waveform or spinning record. The waveform section is like white static on a black backdrop that twitches occasionally. Everything else seems to work. Any ideas?

I'm running Ubuntu 13.10, Mixxx 1.10.1
old Dell XPS 1710 laptop. Video is "Gallium 0.4 on NV49"

Thanks for any help! I've run Mixxx on win7, I think it's great, hoping to run it on Linux.

Hey gang,
I updated to 1.11.0 and the waveform display problem is gone!
Further; I found that that American Audio VMS4.1 works (almost) fine in the VMS4 mapping! :}
Really; the board works fine except for a few problems with samplers. I was amazed...

Biggest problem I have with Mixxxx now is regeistering for the user forums. Have you ever gotten the 'authentication has been sent to your email address' riff and nothing shows up? I've used up all my main email addresses regging at and don't want to use any more, bummer!
