Hey dear community,
I’d like to switch from Ubuntu 21.10 to SUSE Tumbleweed. That’s because support will end in july and I do not like Canonical’s snapcraft enforcment. I’ve just tried SUSE Tumbleweed in VMware and it seems that the concept ist perfect for me. Especially YaST is going to become my friend. All the software that I usually use works fine, but there is one exception.
It’s Mozilla VPN client. Because there is no rpm-package provided by Mozilla, I will have to build it on my own from github.
I’ve already downloaded the repository successfully via
git clone https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/mozilla-vpn-client.git
Then I followed the instructions in the README.md. First I shall install QT6, which can be downloaded as a binary package.
I have done this. But when I try to run it via »sudo« I get the following message:
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found. This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Available platform plugins are: minimal, xcb. Afgebroken
I have an Ubuntu 21.10 based installation natively where I don’t get this error message. So, how can I resolve this issue on SUSE Tumbleweed?
