I've tried multiple ways of starting up rqt and each time the, it starts to load and seems to get stuck and so I'm left with a blank box and can't proceed any further.image description

Can you please add a screenshot of what you see? RQT without any plugins is a "blank window", so that might be perfectly ok.

(note: this is about the only time adding a screenshot makes sense, hence my question)

I'm not sure, but if this is a recent Ubuntu version, then it could be that this is just a basic RQT window with no plugins loaded. If you could verify that the menu appears when you hover over the title bar, then you could try loading a plugin.

If this is the case, it's an Ubuntu UI thing.

Yes, thank you, sorry I'm reasonably new to Ubuntu and I forget the menu is along the top. Thank you

Ok, good to hear that nothing is 'broken' then.
