Whatpulse 3.2 on Ubuntu 21.04
Hi there,

I installed the latest revision of Ubuntu on a spare laptop yesterday, and I'm getting the following terminal output when starting the application. It installed without issue, but when starting the window prompting me to log in through a browser appears for a second or so before closing.

Here is the output from the terminal. From my absolutely untrained eyes, it almost appears to be an issue with Ubuntu 21.04 using wayland?

RE: Whatpulse 3.2 on Ubuntu 21.04
I haven't tested WhatPulse 3.2 (mine is 3.1, I believe), but I encountered almost exactly the same issue when I updated my Ubuntu to 21.04 beta with WhatPulse 3.1. I installed my client before the update, so I didn't see the login prompt, since it was already logged in. But the client always closed itself, right after it became an active window. Even if I don't touch the client at all, it sort of lives on the task bar without dying, but it didn't seem to record anything.

However, according to this page, that is a known limitation.

Known limitations:
Not supported in Wayland (yet).

After I set my Ubuntu to use Xorg, it works fine. But I haven't found a solution with wayland. You can switch back to Xorg on the login screen (the option is next to the login button).

Ahhh, thank you for the information. I suffered from a severe lack of RTFM right there, my apologies.
