Hi, the title says it all.  APP installs successfully under Debian, but clicking on the menu item does nothing?

What happens if you try form the command line? Unfortunately I do not have APP installed on Linux (only on a MacBook) so I don't know the correct command. But from the command line you should hopefully get a message explaining why APP fails to start.

If it installed correctly it lives under /opt/AstroPixelProcessor

cd /opt/AstroPixelProcessor

./AstroPixelProcessor

Does that launch?

OK.this is what I get.
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./AstroPixelProcessor)

I am upgrading now so maybe that will solve the problem.

Do you have libstdc++ 6 installed? If not - something like this?

sudo apt-get install libstdc++6

?

Yes, APP is written in and runs on Java and unfortunately Java has a dependency on certain system libraries to be in certain versions. In short, upgrading to a newer version of Linux Mint probably is the only way forward.

@wvreeven

Thanks for the prompt replies.  I have now upgraded to Linux Mint 19 and it works fine. 🙂
