Anki is not starting

Post by Lavoisier »

I've recently dowloaded mint 19.1 cinnamon on my pc and attempted to download Anki from the app manager. The download goes well and the app is listed as installed, but when I try to open it nothing happens.

Sorry I can't help you but I also have this problem - double clicking the app icon results in nothing whatsoever. Did you find a solution to this? Thanks.

I found a solution for me at least - put this into a terminal:

sudo apt-get install python3-distutils
