How to run Clementine? [solved]

I see here some reasons why Clementine is not added to the Software Center: There is an appimage for it:   When I try to run that I get an error:

 ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage /tmp/.mount_WjwjOZ/usr/bin/clementine.wrapper /tmp/.mount_WjwjOZ/usr/bin/clementine: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: xcb_send_request_with_fds 
  What does that mean?

There is a workaround for this problem. Run the appimage file from terminal as follows

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage

It also works in terminal with the form

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ path/to/Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage

But do you know why it doesn’t work with a desktop launcher with the following line?

Exec=gnome-terminal -e 'LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ path/to/Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage'

 I get an error

I am not sure about the reason for this issue. I also got same error. As a workaround, I created a new file named in home folder and added the command we used in terminal to it. I made the file executable

Then I created a new menu entry using MenuLibre and pointed the command to file. This way we can create a menu entry for Clementine.

I had tried with a script of this form:

cd "/home/cipricus/MY"
gnome-terminal -e "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage"

What is exactly your script?

I did not add all these details. Just added following line in the file

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ /home/aaron/Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage

and saved the file in home folder. After making it executable, it worked. The same worked with MenuLibre too

That works fine.

Hello I’m using Solus Budgie but I am so new at this OS.

sudo: /home/axe/Downloads/Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage: command not found


axe@betul ~/Downloads $ sudo ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage /tmp/.mount_WjwjOZ/usr/bin/clementine.wrapper /tmp/.mount_WjwjOZ/usr/bin/clementine: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: xcb_send_request_with_fds
sudo: ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage: command not found

First of all please make sure your appImage file is executable.

Your are already in Downloads folder. So no need to give full path of AppImage file. It should be enough to run

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/ ./Clementine-1.2.3.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage

And I guess sudo also not required
