Hello I am trying to run the librviz_tutorial code (myviz example) on Ubuntu 16.04 with QT. (Kinetic)

(Link to tutorial code github page: ) (Link to actual tutorial: )

I get following exception and program terminates.

Note that I indeed have the pixmap in correct location ('/opt/ros/kinetic/share/rviz/icons/rotate.svg').

Any suggestions?
