I’ve tried to run the latest gSender EDGE on a fresh RPi install but have not been successful.
01:18PM - 12 May 23 UTC
08:05PM - 08 Jun 23 UTC
Using a Raspberry PI 4, with Buster 32 bit as recommended in the install instruc
The executive summary:
The deb installs but starting gSender fails with “Failed to call method: org.freedesktop.portal.Settings.Read”.
Trying the AppImage I get “Error while loading shared libraries: libz.so”
I also installed the deb on Debian 11 system and still fails to start.
@tcurdt Welcome to the forum! While I don’t have your answer, I am sure someone here may. Personally, I run my gender on an antique MacBook Pro that maybe on its last leg. I’m interested in what you are up to as your solution could be quite inexpensive and not tie up my design computer. Again, welcome!
Thanks for the warm welcome
I dug a bit deeper and it seems like I found the/a problem.
I have documented the details in this new issue:
It seems to be just a problem with the build producing some binaries in the wrong architecture.
Electron makes it for a pretty complex setup and I haven’t found the area to fix this yet.
Would be nice to get some pointers from the devs.
