Clean desktop installation on Ubuntu 22.04 is failing

OS: Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS (Linux)
Joplin: 2.12.15 (latest as of this post)

I am attempting to do a simple clean re-install of the Joplin desktop application on Ubuntu 22.04

The installation appears to run without errors and a startup icon is created. However, when I attempt to launch the application, the user interface does not appear. Then, when I attempt to start ~/.joplin/Joplin.AppImage from the terminal command line, I get a window with some menu items (e.g. file->quit) but nothing else, just a blank white window.

The steps I followed are as follows:

  1. Delete all prior Joplin-related files:
sudo rm -r ~/.joplin 
sudo rm -r ~/.joplin-bin
sudo rm -r ~/.config/joplin-desktop 
sudo rm ~/.local/share/applications/appimagekit-joplin.desktop
sudo rm -r ~/.config/@joplin
sudo rm -r ~/.config/joplin
sudo rm -r ~/.config/Joplin
  1. Install libfuse2
sudo apt install libfuse2
  1. Install the desktop application:
wget -O - | bash
  1. Click on the new Joplin icon in the desktop task bar (a.k.a. "favorites").

Does anyone have any ideas? Have I missed something?
Could an earlier installation of Joplin Terminal be causing a conflict?

I have same issue with Joplin v2.12.15 on Linux Mint 20.3. Previous version Joplin v2.11.11 is working fine.

See v2.12.15 can not run on Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS 64-bit · Issue #8777 · laurent22/joplin · GitHub

If it's the same issue, it's dependency related and should be resolved in a few days!

Thanks. My issue appears to be the same as 8777.

I rolled back to version 2.11.11 by replacing Joplin.AppImage. This seems to work, but I was unable to find instructions for proper installation of a prior version. Is there any danger of me inadvertently corrupting files on the Joplin Cloud server as a result?
