Hi, I have used my "Element" Matrix client in another window manager and now it refuses to start with cinnamon. I tried to delete the folder
Code:
.var/app/im.riot.Riot
and start the program again. But I can't launch it.

Here's the error Message:
Bildschirmfoto vom 2023-05-01 02-56-43.png

It just says "Element is wrong configured"

Maybe I should add, that it's a Flatpak under Mint 21.1

Just launch the Flatpak from the terminal and see what errors you get in your output, so something like this.
Code:
flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam

Maybe this helps:
Code:

I'm getting the same, since Flatpaks should run without you having to do anything the only option would be to create an issue for the maintainer.

Looks like xapp-gtk3-module is failing to load.

Run this command to find out if it's installed.
Code:
dpkg -L xapp-gtk3

Ty, I think we are on the right track here. it gives me unresolved dependencies:
Code:
Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut… Fertig
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen… Fertig
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 xapp : Hängt ab von: libxapp1 (= 2.2.8-1) aber 2.4.2+vera soll installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

That's a simple translation
Code:
xapp : Depends on: libxapp1 (= 2.2.8-1) but 2.4.2+vera should be installed

Could it be a Problem with Wine-Staging or Brave Browser apt repos? These are the only apt repos I have that are non official

Until the dependency issue is satisfied it wouldn't make sense to install xapp.

If they are the only repos that you have enabled on that system then yes it's most likely the problem. APT can't can't install and satisfy packages or dependencies if it can't find them.

Check your sources list, and add other repo's that your distro can pull from.

Assuming your running Ubuntu....Look in:

/etc/apt/sources. list And, /etc/apt/sources. list. d/
Adding repository information manually into the sources.list file is not a recommended practice. Instead, you should use the add-apt-repository command as it is safer and reliable.

You should be good to go.

Do you have the closest mirror to where you are selected?
Speed shouldn't matter, till the mirrors have all the same contents and load correctly with other software. I should be able to install xapp if it wasn't for the dependency issue

Agreed, unmet dependencies are a problem until they are fixed.
Believe me I know...been running Slackware a long time:-

Try opening Synaptic and fix your broken packages--


I looked for libxapp1 2.4.2+vera_amd64.deb which is what the command-line is complaing about in post #10 and couldn't find it.
At best I found 2.2.15 here:
