Cannot start Hard Disk Sentinel Linux GUI

Post by Truly »


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 ... ux_gui.php

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....

I have to recognize that i'm newbie in ubuntu/linux. Now i use 22.04 lts distribution. I have installed ubuntu(12.04 - 22.04) and other applications with no problem few times, but hard disk sentinel for linux, it gaves me headeaches. I'm facing same issue like others and i can't open the application. If i follow your steps, i can't reach edit launcher, after the right click it gaves me only "new window" or "add to favorites". Already are two months from when i try find a solution/explantion for this. Please help!

Hello ! im sory if my english bad, but i have sampe problem here and the way i fixed it just open your file manager and go to /usr/share/bin and you will find this 2 file Image

right click at the that folder (usr/share/bin) and open in terminal, after that just run the HDSENTINEL_GUI with sudo acces. if you do not know how to do it just type sudo ./HDSentinel_GUI

and in my case, HDSentinel is open with no error
