Anki not starting on Linux (Segmentation fault) - Solution: qt5 worked!

When I try to start anki from the terminal, I get this error:

Qt warning: QGuiApplication::setDesktopFileName: the specified desktop file name ends with .desktop. For compatibility reasons, the .desktop suffix will be removed. Please specify a desktop file name without .desktop suffix
Qt debug: doh set to “” – SystemOnly

Which Linux distro are you on?

Which version is your Anki? Latest is 23.12.1

I have ubuntu 22.04 and my anki is the latest

qt6 may also work with a different video driver: Display Issues - Anki Manual
