Beersmith 2 won't launch on new Ubuntu machine
« on: April 10, 2020, 02:04:49 AM »
Hello,

I looked for this problem but couldn't find the right topic.

Context:
I had Beersmith 2 running fine on my Ubuntu 18.04 old computer.
I bought a new one, copied /home from the old computer to the new one to keep my settings and data.
I installed Beersmith 2 on the new machine.

Problem:
When trying to lauch BS2, the name of the software appears in the top bar with the little "processing wheel" next to it, but then it disappears and BS2 doesn't launch. No error message.

I suspect this has to do with the backup files I copied (permission problem?) but I am not sure at all.

Thank you for reading, I hope you can help.

Simon

edit : I should have done this before, but here's what comes back when I try to lauch it from the terminal :

edit 2 : I installed the missing modules, now i get :
