Wordpress-desktop can't launch on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit

After installing, running the executable gives only terminal output:

“cannot change profile for the next exec call”

could you give some more specific info ?
(what exactly did you try to run, where did you install (which distro, what is the output of “snap version” etc))

Here are more details:
Installation method was just “sudo snap install wordpress-desktop” (from http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/05/wordpress-desktop-app-snap )

Execution I tried clicking on the dash icon and running from the terminal but don’t get a GUI.

Result was the error posted above.

Snap Version
snap 2.24.1
snapd 2.24.1
series 16
ubuntu 16.04
kernel 4.6.0-040600-lowlatency

uname -a
Linux S1535 4.6.0-040600-lowlatency #201606100558 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 10 10:04:04 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

this does not look like an official kernel … and your error message indicates a problem with security profiles (either apparmor or seccomp)

Crikey - I had no idea. I’m not the type to play with kernels. Okay, let’s assume that’s the issue. I’ll look into restoring the kernel to default and report back.

It’ works fine after restoring the kernel. Sincere apologies for time wasted.

no need to apologize, glad i could help :slight_smile:
