Thread: Finished a system update and now apps won't start.

  1. #1

    Default Finished a system update and now apps won't start.

    Hi,

    I finished a system update & now whenever I try to start an app I installed from .rpm (Keybase and IVPN) it shows up an icon on the taskbar & in System Monitor for a brief moment and then instantly closes.

    I checked Yast Software Management and the app version in "Installed (Available)" tab is red.
    I can run both IVPN and Keybase in the command line, but just the GUIs are acting up as I mentioned above.

    This is on Opensuse Tumbleweed with KDE Plasma 5.22.5.

    Can anyone help me solve this? I only installed Opensuse a few days ago and I'm new to Linux.

    can you open up the console, and run the program for the gui there and paste the output here?

    run_keybase outputs this:

    Unmounting /run/user/1000/keybase/kbfs...
    Unmounting and shutting down kbfsfuse...
    Shutting down keybase service...
    Starting via systemd...
    run_keybase: Success!

    Says success but the GUI still won't launch

    Default AW: Finished a system update and now apps won't start.

    Maybe you need a newer one because of glibc2.34?

    in yast software - is there another version available? if its red, it mostly means, that the current version is not part of your packages right now. that may break the libs as sauerland wrote. you should install a version that is deliverd by selecting another version in yast when available.
    if you dont have a working version in yast, you cloud checkout the buildservice- webpage if there is a version matching.
    installing a version via rpms from another distribution is mostly not working very well - i guess you did that.

    As the OP said

    it is most probably not from any repo and maybe not even installed using zypper, but using rpm. That would make consulting YaST > Software Management something of a challenge .

    Maybe the OP should first explain where that application is from and how he installed it.

    Hi
    I suspect it's an electron based application, a fix is being worked on upstream, just have to play the waiting game....

    As a Tumbleweed user, then it's best to also follow the Factory Mailing List....

    With everyone's help I now realized it's due to the electron bug. Thanks everybody
    Are the devs aware of this?

    In that case use openSUSE Leap, not Tumbleweed.
