I installed SimpleCV in a docker container on Ubuntu 14.04. In an iPython notebook I run the following code with no problem:

from SimpleCV import *
init_options_handler.enable_notebook()
lenna = Image("lenna")
lenna.show()

However, when I try to draw on the image using

lenna.drawText("Lenna")
lenna.show()

I get "ValueError: no standard masks exist for given bitdepth with alpha". How can I fix this?
