Paperspace desktop client doesn't start on Ubuntu 20.04

Installed paperspace client on Ubuntu 20.04. It starts, but has a blank screen.

Tried to start it from the command-line like this:

cd ~/Paperspace
./Paperspace.sh --startup

Seeing the following error outputs:

[34704:34704:0709/090926.039749:ERROR:network_service_instance_impl.cc(286)] Network service crashed, restarting service.[34704:34704:0709/090926.048210:ERROR:network_service_instance_impl.cc(286)] Network service crashed, restarting service.

Any suggestions to resolve this?

Here’s the total output: https://gist.github.com/gcharang/f7a7ba8fc3c4350d0e6031da89a8c3c8

If you’re running Ubuntu 20.04 and would like to install the Paperspace application, you will need to install the libminizip library.

To do so, open a Terminal and run this command sudo apt install libminizip1.

If you’re getting an error that states ‘Aborted (Core Dumped),’ please refer to the workaround on this link.

Hi! the solutions in your post weren’t enough to solve the issue.

I found a similar error (ERROR:network_service_instance_impl.cc(286)) reported on the qt website: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-91715

Ran the following command to find if mine was a similar issue related to non-existant locale:

strace -e trace=%file -f ./Paperspace.sh --startup 2>&1 | grep qtwebengine_locales

Sure enough, found the following:

access("/home/gcharang/Paperspace/translations/qtwebengine_locales/en-IN.pak", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

The app was trying to access a non-existant locale file. So, I simply copied the en-US.pak file from /home/gcharang/Paperspace/translations/qtwebengine_locales/ and pasted it into the same directory with the name en-IN.pak

The app started without issues after that.
