Downloaded Joplin from its website on 4 June 2023 Australian WST (GMT + 8)
file size is reported as 176 MB
Installation of Joplin-2.10.19.dmg proceeded normally (drag app to applications folder)
Starting the app produces a totally blank Joplin window that can be closed, but the Joplin app itself can only be exited with a "force quit" action from 'Apple' menu item.
Restarting macOS and running Joplin has the same effect.
Previous Joplin worked fine but unfortunately I deleted it during upgrade ( never again ...)
To the best of my knowledge I dont have any plugins. Also, I tried a clean install of the app. Perhaps if I deleted any Joplin files stored on my iMac hard drive ?
I use Joplin on linux, ipad and iphone most of the time to sync with other machines so my notes are safe I think.
That's a lot of plugins... For those who have this blank window bug, would you mind changing your flags.txt file so that the dev tools open on startup? As described here: How to enable debugging | Joplin
That way, when the window is white you should still be able to see any error in the console. And if you could let us know what those are it would be great
These reports seem to be affecting Macs and this thread mentions possible problems with the MacOS Theme plugin when upgrading. The above plugin list shows that the theme plugin is installed.
Make sure Joplin is shut down and try deleting ~/.config/joplin-desktop/plugins/com.andrejilderda.macOSTheme.jpl before trying to restart Joplin. I am not saying that this IS the cause, but it is worth checking.
If this does not help please note @laurent's post above about enabling debugging in order to try to find out what is going wrong.
I tryed run your order and get "acces denied". I paste~/.config/joplin-desktop/plugins/com.andrejilderda.macOSTheme.jpl
In my macbook air joplin runs fine (this plugin not installed). The problem is in my macmini 2013 (monterrey)
Further to my report on lack of plugins, I happen to also have a 2012 MacMini running MacOS Monterey and have installed the upgraded Joplin on it with no problems. I cant go back to my previous Joplin version on the iMac as there is a problem with the profile (whatever that is) not being compatible. So its something to do with MacOS Ventura.
