I applied the update monero.gui. from monero.gui.v0.16.0.2 on Zorin 15.2 and followed the instructions for a new installation from your website.

  • Does GUI v0.16.0.2 still work properly? Also, do you see any errors in monero-wallet-gui.log?

  • No, I tried that and it gives me the same message. Where can I find the monero-wallet-gui.log ?

  • Did any Monero version work properly on your system or is this the first time you are trying to run Monero? monero-wallet-gui.log should be in the same directory as monero-wallet-gui. If not, I'd recommend simply searching the system for the file.

The issue was resolved by starting the GUI as follows:

QMLSCENE_DEVICE=softwarecontext ./monero-wallet-gui

QMLSCENE_DEVICE=softwarecontext is basically a fallback mode with respect to graphics. It can be utilized in case the 'default graphics' do not properly support the rendering of the GUI.
