This is on startup, I cannot get debug info after the bug because it crashed.

	Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

That “JavaScript Libraries” is a samples plugin only with the name changed. Also this crash does not happen on X11 or MacOS.

Additional information

Please, don’t open a new thread if one already exists.

As I mentioned on that thread, wayland support in electron suffers several bugs (beyond this recent crash) and I advise you to use xwayland (or x11) for the time being.

Apologies, I thought the issue was slightly different and warranted a different bug report. Will move the information to the original thread.
