Hi @Alexandre_; welcome to our Community and sorry to hear you're having issues with installing our desktop app on your Linux machine.

 

Can you please clarify the exact OS you're on and if you made sure that your device is meeting our minimum requirements?

 

Have you by any chance tried to re-install it lately?

 

Let me know what you find and we'll take it from there Alexandre!
