Unable to Use Ping Viewer on Ubuntu 18.04


I downloaded the latest Linux release for the Ping Viewer on your website. However, when I tried to run the executable from commandline, I receive the following error:

[11:16:48.864] qt.qpa.plugin[Info]: Could not load the Qt platform plugin “xcb” in “” even though it was found.
[11:16:48.866] default[Fatal]: This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: xcb.

Aborted (core dumped)

When I set the flag export QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS=1, I notice that the following error message:

Cannot load library /tmp/.mount_pingviG5nyoy/usr/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so: (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.28’ not found (required by /tmp/.mount_pingviG5nyoy/usr/plugins/platforms/…/…/lib/libsystemd.so.0))

It seems that I am at a deadend on Ubuntu 18.04. Without Glibc 2.28 I can neither run the executable nor build from source (since Qt 5.15 also requires Glibc 2.28).

Does anyone know any workaround?


Hi @philip-huang,

Can you check the appimage from this build ?
We moved it from ubuntu-latest to ubuntu-18.04, it may fix your problem.
