    When I start the AppImage it crashes with the following message.

    [13727:0227/220119.343559:FATAL:gpu_data_manager_impl_private.cc(892)] The display compositor is frequently crashing. Goodbye.


    What can I do to diagnose this problem?

    My system:
    OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
    Host: Z690 UD DDR4
    Kernel: 5.15.25-1-MANJARO
    CPU: 12th Gen Intel i3-12100F (8) @ 5.500GHz
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660
    Memory: 2916MiB / 31945MiB

    My understanding is that Manjaro is not on our supported list. We only support:
    • Ubuntu 16.04
    • Ubuntu 18.04
    • CentOS 7

    If you're on Arch Linux or other derivative, there is an unofficial package on the AUR. It's set up with a known working configuration and should just launch.

    Goes without saying, this is not supported by Unity Technologies at all, but it works for me.

    Otherwise try launching with the following argument: --disable-gpu-sandbox
    The AppImage gives me the same error as described in the original post, and this argument fixes it for me.

    Ok so I got this error too. Turns out it's available on flatpak. I installed it with that and had no issues! It was a much less complex install too. Hope this helps!
