Appimage not working? asks for Sandboxing? Any advice?


#1

I am trying to install an AppImage (Gingko )
Here’s the terminal output

:~$ Gingko-2.4.8.AppImage 
[17366:0204/093839.672199:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(157)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /tmp/.mount_GingkofpQ1us/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.
Trace/breakpoint trap

Here’s the output for tmp showing no /.mount_GingkoofpQ1us

:/tmp# ls -a

And running it as su:

sherab-librem:~$ sudo su Gingko-2.4.8.AppImage 
[sudo] password for sherab: 
su: user Gingko-2.4.8.AppImage does not exist

any suggestions?

Solution:

  1. run in terminal from a command line but append “–no-sandbox” to the command (leave space between)

  2. run in terminal: “sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1” and try starting the usual way (clicking icon in launcher)
