Desktop App for Linux: X server crash

Hello everyone,

I'm having problems with Desktop App for Linux. It's totally broken for me and I can't track time.

The issue is that when I launch it, something happens with my OS session and I'm ending up kicked to the OS login screen. The issue happens in both "stable" and "beta" channels,  reinstalling the app does not help.

 

From what I understand from the logs, it seems that Upwork Desktop App crashes the X server.
Logs are posted here: https://gist.github.com/kop/304fd05dfdc314c5c8dfa77193fe54ec


OS: Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena"

Hi Ivan,

 

Could you try running the app with "--disable-gpu" parameter? Let us know if that helps.

Thank you, Valeria!

 

It seems to work fine with "--disable-gpu" parameter.
