Linux Mint 17.3 on Dell Inspiron 15R with Intel graphics
Broken: 2.79.1 Edge (Thomas Sheix PPA)
Worked: 2.79 RC2
Short description of error
Pulling up menu to add nodes in the compositor screen, and all entries in the list of nodes types shows "unknown". Seems like something was left out in the release.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps
