Running Stepmania on Linux

Some time ago I have tried to run Stepmania on Linux system. It was Kubuntu. I have found repository but after installing it didn't work:

eshlox@eshlox stepmania-tip $ ./src/stepmania
StepMania v5.0 beta 2a
Compiled 20131225 @ 21:28:24 CET (UTC+01:00) (build 2)
Log starting 2013-12-25 21:36:59
(stepmania:14617): GLib-CRITICAL **: PCRE library is compiled without UTF8 support
(stepmania:14617): GLib-CRITICAL **: PCRE library is compiled without UTF8 properties support
(stepmania:14617): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_regex_match_full: assertion 'regex != NULL' failed
StepMania 5 has crashed. Debug information has been output to
/tmp/crashinfo.txt
Please report a bug at:

I had the same problem after compilation from the source but i have found a solution - just disable GTK2 and everything will work correctly.

./configure --disable-gtk2
make
./src/stepmania
