Crashes desktop on HiDPI display


Recommended Posts

I am about ready to bail on this product. The release 6 upgrade is a disaster on Linux Mint, and apparently other Distros.

I went through the "libcurl" issue and found a solution posted here (install libcurl3).

The next issue was not being able to set up sync with Dropbox. The problem is when you "allow" the access in Dropbox it generates a new tab with a "enpassauth://" URL, and the browser says it doesn't know what to do with it.

This was on 18.3, and Enpass would start fine and the GUI worked - just the sync was broken. I updated to Mint 19, and it was still broken exactly the same way.

I finally found a work around where you enter the URL from the browser as a parameter to Enpass on the command line.

So now I try to install on a desktop system running Mint 18. Install goes fine, but the same issue with "libcurl" happens. Fix that by installing "libcurl3".

Now the GUI will start, but once you enter the password, anything you click will lock the entire desktop. You cannot get a console with Alt-F1. The only thing I could get to work was forcing a reboot with Alt-SysReq-B.

Based on all the scaling problems being reported, I assume this is due to the higher resolution display on the desktop. The laptop that works is 1440 x 900, and the desktop is full HD.

Is this a known issue? Is anyone else having a similar problem?

I really like this product, especially the very reliable sync with Dropbox. I have already spent 8 - 10 hours to get this far and this problem is much harder to troubleshoot. Nothing in Syslog BTW.
