Description Marco Scardovi (scardracs) 2022-12-15 22:31:38 UTC
Hello everyone,
I'm opening that bug because irccloud does not start if --no-sandbox is not set with nvidia-drivers. I perfectly understand that running an electron application without sandbox is less secure but actually it does not work at all:

23:28:56.430 › setupConfig
23:28:56.508 › ready []
23:28:56.559 › isDefaultProtocolClient: irc true
23:28:56.560 › isDefaultProtocolClient: ircs true
23:28:56.562 › openMainWindow
[7632:1215/] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.
fish: Job 1, 'irccloud' terminated by signal SIGTRAP (Trace or breakpoint trap)

Is it possible to add --no-sandbox to irccloud.desktop IF nvidia-drivers is detected? Thanks

I don't really like the idea of disable it so, if you have better solution, please tell me

After some research it seems possible to use --in-process-gpu too
