Nheko from flathub didn't start

Hello, after the last updatd, nheko didn’t start.

flatpak run im.nheko.Nheko
Failed to create wl_display (No such file or directory)
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "wayland" 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: vnc, wayland, minimalegl, minimal, linuxfb, eglfs, offscreen, vkkhrdisplay, xcb, wayland-egl.

When I use the following command it works, but it’s ugly

export QT_QPA_PLATFORM= xcb

What happens when you reinstall the Nheko Flatpak?

Already try it and same issue.
I remove it and reinstall it, don’t know if there is a better way.

What happens when you try the other platform plugins?

export QT_QPA_PLATFORM= wayland

You have a total of ten available for Nheko.

with wayland I have the same behaviour. Xcb work but it’s ugly

Does using xcb as a platform plugin look like these screenshots?

it’s more fluid, but it’s usable.

Thanks for helping

Installing sudo apt install qtwayland5 has helped in the past for the native PureOS package. IIRC, nheko is now using Qt6, but qt6-wayland is likely not available on Byzantium, as is the latest release of Nheko. As the flathub listing mentions “Uses a legacy windowing system”, there’s likely no way to run this with the wayland — so you will have to live with blurriness for now.
