Problems launching app after successful browser login

image

I am trying to login with to the replit desktop app. Starts fine, and will open the link to sign in fine, and the browser window says logged in. But when I want to reopen the app from the browser it cannot because no apps are installed.

Is there another way to login or am I missing something?

It’s basically (likely) because the replit:// protocol wasn’t properly installed on your computer. I think this is a known issue, but it’s still not been fixed yet.

Hey @smokierlemur51!

I had this issue as well on Ubuntu. If you run cat /usr/share/applications/replit.desktop in the shell, does that return anything?

If it does, make sure that there is a MimeType line as shown below, which will allow Ubuntu to recognize the replit:// protocol:

I ended up reinstalling it, and rather than trying to unzip it myself I used the command under this

sudo dpkg -i replit_1.0.5_amd64.deb
