Unable to run OnlyOffice in Firejail


I’m not able to run the desktop editors in firejail as it keeps crashing with the following error:

QLayout: Attempting to add QLayout “” to CTabBarWrapper “tabWrapper”, which already has a layout
[0103/] The display compositor is frequently crashing. Goodbye.

I’m running the following command trying to configure a firejail profile:

sudo firejail --build=onlyoffice.profile onlyoffice-desktopeditors

Also if I just use firejail onlyoffice-desktopeditors or firejail /usr/bin/onlyoffice-desktopeditors it’s now loading, although the sandbox launches. The terminal shows this:

Reading profile /etc/firejail/default.profile
Reading profile /etc/firejail/
Reading profile /etc/firejail/

** Note: you can use --noprofile to disable default.profile **

Parent is shutting down, bye…

I know you can run it via appimage etc but this software is just a layer of bloatware and I don’t really want it on my PC if I’m honest.

My desktop environment is XFCE using XFWM as the window manager. All graphics drivers are installed and working - as this was one of the original problems I fixed.

Also using Light DM & Xorg/X11.

OS version: Arch Linux
App version: latest
Downloaded from: Pacman

Hello @cmarshall98
We are checking the situation. I will update this thread when we have something to share.

Thanks - the issue seems to have fixed itself for me now once I restarted after installing the graphics driver. However may be best to double check to just confirm it doesn’t do this under any other circumstances as I haven’t fully tested it yet, only as a cursory overview.

Thank you for your update, we are looking into it. I will update this thread as soon as possible.
