Ver 2.55.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 - Edit Metadata problems

Have used Calibre for over 15 years, it is the bets!
Lately I've a problem - when I select Edit Metadata - Edit Metadata Individually the latter flickers and I can't select it at all.
Anyone else experienced this? What should I do?

Yes, it does. Change your desktop environment from Ubuntu to GNOME and see the problem disappear.

Sorry for delay in replying.
Just how do I change my desktop environment? Will it affect the way 16.04 performs?

Install a new desktop and you will get an option to login to it from your login manager.

It isn't really different from using any other alternative software, e.g. Firefox vs. Chrome.
