AppImage (Snap and Flatpak) won't start

Arch Linux
Sway Window Manager (Wayland)
OnlyOffice Desktop Editors (7.1.0.glibc2.17) Downloaded from website OnlyOffice

OnlyOffice refuses to start, this is what I get in the terminal:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland-egl"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: linuxfb, minimal, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Hello @ShinobiX9X

Unfortunately, running QT apps is a global issue on Arch Linux. Please check it out:

Iā€™m mot sure that this scenario is related to Desktop Editors only, but to OS.

Sorry for inconvenience.

Hello,

I was able to make it work by editing the .desktop file, prepending env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb to the exec line. Like this:
Exec=env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb /home/<user>/Applications/DesktopEditors-x86_64_505775b5d6100e77ec062e29e714db80.AppImage %F

Thank you so much, now I can try to use it :slight_smile:
