I also had this problem on Ubuntu 22.04.
Must use sudo privileges to do this… :innocent:

Ha yes ok ! thanks a lot i would never think to this !

Was it working on Windows with Administrator permission only?

Maybe have you saved your project to a location which needs extra privileges (e.g. into Program Files)?

I think this problem come from x11 desktop environment !
I fixed this problem with the step below:
On Ubuntu 22.04:
1- download and extract
2- Open file name squareline_studio.desktop.template
3- find line:
Exec="__folder__/SquareLine_Studio.x86_64" %U
and replace with :

Exec=bash -c "export GDK_BACKEND=x11 && __folder__/SquareLine_Studio.x86_64"

save it !
4- run script ./

Done !
run SquareLine_Studio.x86_64 software and Enjoy …

Thanks! I’ll keep in mind if others report similar issue.

Note that doing export GDK_BACKEND=x11 this way disappears if you restart your PC.
