Solutions for Linux

1. Install linsnl

If you are attempting to run our Logic 2 software on Linux, the issue we have seen is as follows: => not found

It seems that some Linux distributions may have removed libnsl, and that reinstalling it solves this issue. The command to install it will depend on the package repository for your specific OS. For example, for the yum package manager:

yum install libnsl

In case the solution above doesn't help, please contact us as we may need to take a look at the output of the following commands to debug this further.

  • ./Logic-2.x.xx-master.AppImage --appimage-extract (replace "x.xx" with the specific version of Logic 2)

  • cd squashfs-root/resources/linux

  • ldd

  • ldd -v

2. Try running the latest version of Logic 2

Starting version v2.3.22, we fixed an issue with the software immediately crashing upon opening on Linux. You can download the latest version of the software here.

Be sure to select the x64 version if you are using a 64-bit version of Windows. After you have installed the runtime, try restarting the computer and running the Logic 2 software again.
