MongoDB Compass not opening on Ubuntu 18.10

Hi there,

This is Osama, new student in MongoDB University. I’ve installed MongoDB Compass but when I open that it does open.

Help me!


Please find below reply from our Compass Team.

Hi guys,

yes, we received a couple of reports about the issues with Fedora, we’ll look into those ASAP.

The problem with Ubuntu 18.10 is also known. 18.10 includes an update to libc that breaks compatibility with the version of Electron we use up to Compass 1.17. Compass 1.18 will work in Ubuntu 18.10. Expect it to be out (at least in beta) in the next few weeks.

Apologies for the trouble this is causing.
