    I am running Linux Mint 19 on an Alienware 14 laptop.
    I downloaded the .appimage, marked it as an executable file, then ran it normally. It only gives me a white window.
    I tried running it as root, and it seems to work properly, even giving me the option to integrate it into the system as an official program.
    Though since it is said that running the Unity Editor as root is a bad idea, I need to figure out how to get this Hub to work without running as root.
    The link that Unity Hub makes to the start/programs menu also doesn't do anything.
    Why does this happen and how could I fix this?
    {EDIT} I don't know how it happened but it suddenly works now. I won't complain.
