The app auto updated to version 5.3.3-883 today (04/30/2020) and since then the app does not launch. When I start the app, I see the three introductory slides in the app and then nothing.
This is what I see if I try to start it from the command line -
$ upwork --verbose (node:3468) [DEP0005] DeprecationWarning: Buffer() is deprecated due to security and usability issues. Please use the Buffer.alloc(), Buffer.allocUnsafe(), or Buffer.from() methods instead. [3468:0430/020522.485048:ERROR:gpu_process_transport_factory.cc(1017)] Lost UI shared context. [3520:0430/020522.507048:ERROR:command_buffer_proxy_impl.cc(130)] ContextResult::kTransientFailure: Failed to send GpuChannelMsg_CreateCommandBuffer.
Any help would be appreciated. Please fix this at a priority since this prevents users from working. While this is being fixed, can I download the older version from somewhere?
I`m sorry about the inconvenience this had caused you. Our team will reach out to you via ticket as soon as possible and assist you further with the desktop app. Thank you.
Upwork support was really unhelpful as they asked me reinstall the Mac version of the app. I doubt they even went through this thread. Could you please point me to the download link for an older version of the desktop app? This is preventing me from working.
I uninstalled an old version and installed upwork_188.8.131.52_amd64.deb. It failed to get past the splash screen with a similar error:
undefined (node:9831) [DEP0005] DeprecationWarning: Buffer() is deprecated due to security and usability issues. Please use the Buffer.alloc(), Buffer.allocUnsafe(), or Buffer.from() methods instead. (Use `upwork --trace-deprecation ...` to show where the warning was created) (upwork:9831): Gtk-WARNING **: 12:42:23.725: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:1:62: Failed to import: The resource at “/com/ubuntu/themes/Yaru/3.0/gtk.css” does not exist [9872:0131/124223.886007:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(377)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.
I was able to get it to run by renaming Home/.upwork to be Home/.upwork_deleteMe to make it ignore my old history.
