ANSWERED Eddie-ui fails to start in Linux Armbian

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm new to Linux and I'm trying to install Eddie for desktop on a machine with architecture arm64 and Armbian Linux.

So, after many troubles with the dependencies, I managed to install the Eddie experimental version 2.20.0 (providing the commands in the terminal).
I can see the Eddie icon between the installed software, but when I click on it, it does not start.
I tried to write 
eddie-ui
in the terminal, but it provides this
umbe@arm-64:~$ eddie-ui

First, did you run Eddie as root? Doesn't look like it, and both the warning message and the $ in the prompt without at least a sudo hint at this.
Second, are you running a graphical environment? If not, eddie-ui --cli is the only option you have. Calling eddie-ui launches Eddie with GUI.

Thanks for your answer, I'm running armbian on a tv box connected to a monitor.
Moving to root and writing eddie-ui in the terminal provides a similar error

while if I type eddie-ui --cli it suggest to write eddie-ui --cli -login=mynick -password=mypassword with my credentials. I tried and, at least on the terminal, eddie manage to start.
As suggested in the terminal, I wrote N and the connection was established (tested with ipleaks.net).

However, I'd rather to run eddie with the GUI, especially for setting the preferences...is there any way to do that? As I mentioned, there is no response when I press on the icon and I have no idea of what I should do... Edited ... by umbeVPN

That doesn't really answer the question. A headless system will be able to use the monitor, too, that doesn't mean it can draw windows. Are you running a desktop environment like xfce or not? Or asked this way: When you flashed Armbian, did you choose an ISO with "desktop" in its name or one without?

Perfect, this answers the question perfectly.

Can you please execute this:

$ mono-test-install

.

I'm sorry to bother you with these problems... Do you think that the issue that I'm encountering with eddie is something that can be solved or I should try to use another linux distro?

Neither. Install the complete Mono framework to be sure it's not a matter of missing libraries:

# apt-get install mono-complete

Ok, I installed the complete framework but mono-test-install returns the same answer.
Anyway, I red the eddie-cli manual and I managed to provide on the terminal the settings that I intended to set through the GUI, therefore the situation right now is not so bad for my needs.
If you have other suggestions I'll be happy to give them a try, otherwise I thank you very much for your help, I discovered another way to get the VPN working thanks to you!

Interestingly, I get a similar error when I run the test tool… might be a bug with it.

Does eddie-ui work now after installation of the complete framework?

I got great news!
At the beginning eddie-ui did not work even after the installation of the complete framework.
For other reasons, I executed

sudo apt --fix-broken install
and installed xrdp (I was looking for remore control) following these instructions.
Now, I don't know which is the reason between these two, but now eddie-ui starts simply by clicking on the icon!
I managed to login, insert my settings and everything else through the GUI. Finally the problem is solved.
Again, thank you very much for your help @OpenSourcerer, I'm very grateful for the support provided.

Oh. This comes closest to what it might have been:

  • install xserver-xorg-core package
  • Install xsrever-xorg-input-all package
  • install xorgxrdp package 
The core package missing is the most probable cause – and also the most improbable, because how can xfce start without Xorg core files? Input files missing doesn't make sense, the stack trace above points at a problem drawing the window, not accepting input. xorgxrdp is only for xrdp support, and why should Eddie use that. Riddles in the dark

Glad that it works for you now. Enjoy :)
