Problem launching q2studio (libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Hello everyone
Trying to run q2studio after having natively installed Qiime2 2 Core 2021.11 distribution with miniconda on Ubuntu (WSL 1) and came across an error on the last command to launch the interface

(qiime2-2021.11) [email protected]:~/q2studio-2021.11.0$ npm start

[email protected] start
cross-env NODE_ENV=production electron -r babel-register build/main.js

/home/gabgon/q2studio-2021.11.0/node_modules/electron/dist/electron: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Couldnt find any fix. Anyone has any clue? Thanks

So, just an update.
I ran:

sudo apt-get install libgconf-2-4

and now when doing: npm start
i get:

[email protected] start
cross-env NODE_ENV=production electron -r babel-register build/main.js

Any idea? Thank you all

Hi @gabgon,

Welcome to the :qiime2: forum!

I would actually recommend using our newest QIIME 2 user interface, q2galaxy, over q2studio. Although we do still support this interface, q2galaxy is a much more robust tool. We will be releasing a detailed tutorial that utilizes this interface throughout at the beginning of next week - so look out for that release announcement on the forum, and let us know if you have any questions!

Cheers :lizard:
