Cannot start Hard Disk Sentinel Linux GUI

Postby Truly » 2020.11.09. 01:04


I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.
Code: Select all
uname - a:
(linux REPLACED 5.4.0-52-generic #57-Ubuntu SMP Thu Oct 15 10:57:00 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

I've followed the installation instructions

After I run the application a window pops up asking for the sudo password:

After entering the password, another window pops up:

If I choose No, I get the following:

If I choose Yes, it closes the application.

I've tried multiple times to enter the sudo password, even typing it in text editor and copy-pasting, but the result is the same.

What am I doing wrong?

Yes I have the exact same issue running on ubuntu 20.
one thing though is that:
1) at first I ran the install script under sudo, it installed but would start (same exact error as OP)
2) I reran the script under my account, still same error.
3) I uninstalled it as root, then reinstalled under my own account, still getting the same error....
