QGIS emits the following warnings when starting, and fails to display the main menu bar.

$ qgis --nocustomization

Warning: loading of qgis translation failed [/usr/share/qgis/i18n//qgis_en_US]

Warning: loading of qt translation failed [/usr/share/qt4/translations/qt_en_US]

Warning: void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already trackin g action "Project Properties..." under id 125

Warning: void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::fillLayoutItem(DBusMenuLayoutItem*, QMenu *, int, int, const QStringList&): No id for action

Warning: void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::fillLayoutItem(DBusMenuLayoutItem*, QMenu *, int, int, const QStringList&): No id for action

The "//" in the path "/usr/share/qgis/i18n//qgis_en_US" looks suspect, and there is no "qgis_en_US" among the 47 files in the i18n directory.

Help and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

Welcome to gis.SE. How did you install your build? Some packages or from source? Did you previously have a 1.7 build? Has QGIS 1.8 ever worked on this machine for you? – BradHards Apr 20 '13 at 5:54

I had the same problem, reinstalled python 2.7, upgraded qgis to 2.8.1, etc. My problem was caused by the configuration file.

sudo rm ~/.config/QGIS/QGIS2.conf

Executing the above in bash allowed QGIS to start up normally.
