Appimage Issue Resolution

Created by Greymass Team, Modified on Wed, 15 Mar 2023 at 02:14 PM by Greymass Team

The AppImage version of Anchor has problems with certain Linux distributions. If it's possible to install Anchor using the .deb version instead of the AppImage, that would be a potentially easier fix.  
However, if you'd prefer to stay with the AppImage version, it can be fixed by editing a hidden file in your home folder. Here are the instructions:

If you navigate to this folder (which may be hidden):


You'll find a file that looks something like:


This file needs to be edited and should be able to open with any text editor. Look for the line that starts with "Exec=" which is what tells the OS where the AppImage file is. 
At the very end of this line, add a single space and then "%U" (without the quotes).

Save that file and relaunch Anchor, and it should begin handling those requests properly. 

There's a Github issue you can reference here regarding the issue which goes over the same steps and has a couple screenshots:
