Unable to start Joplin with MX Linux


I've just used the command you mentioned for installing Joplin (2.7.15) on a Linux MX 19 (Debian).
At this time I'm can't start Joplin, nothing appends !

Does the .appimage have executable permissions?

Otherwise can you run it from the terminal and paste the output here?

yes !

install: opérande de fichier cible manquant après 'Joplin-2.7.15.AppImage'

Just to make sure can you post the command you are running too?

I just started the latest release version of Joplin on MX Linux 21 and it works just fine out of the box.

Edit - for sake of completion I tried it on 19.4 and it works just fine there too

sudo wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laurent22/joplin/dev/Joplin_install_and_update.sh | bash

That is the install script, I'm asking for the terminal output from running the appimage.

$ ~/.joplin/Joplin.AppImage

$ ~/.joplin/Joplin.AppImage

Trappe pour point d'arrêt et de trace

It seems this was seen before on older Debian distros. Does it start if you append --no-sandbox to the command?

See: Unable to start 1.0.179 (on Linux)

yes it works !

~/.joplin/Joplin.AppImage --no-sandbox
