Thank you @alexmurray!
With your updated note in that thread about building
desktop-gnome-platform but making sure to not create the
gnome-platform directory by removing the build override,
bin/desktop-launch now does its thing without complaint.
However, now I get a segfault (core dump), which I didn’t get when
Seems to be related to anything desktop, so snippetpixie’s command line options
--import are working, but as soon as I attempt
--start which needs to access desktop APIs, or of course try and see the window, segfault.
Does anyone have any advice on where to look for the problem? (sorry if the answer is very obvious, I’m new to Linux development)
