Expo desktop development tool doesn't open


I downloaded Linux version from the https://xde-updates.exponentjs.com/download/linux-x86_64. Then to install I executed commands below:

  1. chmod a+x xde*.AppImage
  2. ./xde*.AppImage

Output error:

How to fix/solve it?

P.S.: OS is “Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS”


Can you provide more details about your system here? 32-bit vs. 64-bit, etc?

Can you paste the output of dpkg -s libnss and dpkg -s libnss3? It seems like recent version of Electron in AppImage have had issues with NSS 3 vs. 4.


dpkg -s libnss:

Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

I don’t know what to do next…
I must install libnss or libnss4?!


So sorry for the delay here! I think if you install libnss4 it should resolve the problem, but I’m not positive. Unfortunately the Electron dependencies we have don’t regularly get used on 14.04.


I upgraded ubuntu from 14.04 to 17.04 (but I didn’t want it) and Expo desktop works very well…
Thanks @dikaiosune!
