Synfig will not start in Ubuntu

I recently did a clean install of Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) and installed Synfig. When I click it from the menu the program seems to start. The logo-picture shows up and then nothing happens. Anyone had this problem? What to do? It worked fine when I hade Ubuntu 8.04.

I’ve got an Laptop Extensa 5429G, with AMD Turion 64 x 2 Mobile Technology TL-58, if that helps.
