I build a Virtualbox VM with Debian Buster and installed Jamovi. You can find it here:

i've pushed out a 1.2.19 which will fix one of these problems. so when you go to export a plot, we ask electron to request a filename from the user. to the bottom right, you can choose the file format; PNG, EPS, etc.

now electron does not provide us with the format that the user chose (i'm pretty sure they blame Gtk), so that box doesn't do anything (but i feel like we need to keep it there as a hint as to the sorts of formats we support). in order to choose different formats, you need to add .pdf, or .eps, or whatever onto the end of your filename.

the change i introduced, is that if no extension is specified, it will default to the first in the list ... in this case .pdf.

not perfect, but the best i can do for now.
