Anki Forums

"Please use File>Import" popup on startup

After upgrading to Fedora 35, Anki’s main window was blank for me, so I looked at the docs, and followed the advice at the forum discussion that it linked to, which lead me to start Anki with anki --no-sandbox.

While thankfully, Anki does start up for me now, there’s now this popup window on startup:

Is there any way to get rid of this popup window?

I edited the desktop file at /usr/local/share/applications/anki.desktop to include

Exec=env QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--no-sandbox" anki %f

And it seems to work now with no problems.
