Salome-Meca 2018 on Ubuntu 18.04

I have asked this question under "Code Aster Installation". I guess it was the wrong place and I am posting it here again.

There are questions similar to mine on the forum, but none of the answers seem to solve my problems.

As background, I have had SM 2018, and probably two or three previous versions,  installed on Ubuntu 16.04. I upgraded Ubuntu 18.04 and everything worked fine.

After a disk crash I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 and SM 2018.

To Install SM, I had to install Python 2.7 and had to unzip the archive with 7zip as gzip corrupted the run file. (This may be of value to somebody)

I now have SM 2018 and SM 2017.0.2 installed and I have the same problems on both:
-Starting AsterStudy from SM gives me the message "Failed to activate module AsterStudy"
-The help files do not open from the Help menu. (The path to my browser is correctly specified  in  Preferences)
-Preferences are not saved, it opens with the defaults every time.
-Every time SM is opened the "Most recently used" file list is empty.

I can live with the last three, but I include them in case the problems are related.

My last possible clue, if I start SM from the terminal I get:
Error when trying to access active network connections.
Traceback (most recent call last):

Your help is appreciated. Thank you in advance
