[DevTools Bug]: react-devtools standalone launching and quitting after 2 seconds with no errors on Ubuntu 22.04

This issue has been created since 2022-09-11.

Website or app


Repro steps

Run react-devtools in the terminal.

An empty window appears for maybe 2 seconds and then disappears. The terminal doesn't show any messages whatsoever.

There is another issue here regarding react-devtools failing silently on Debian, where the submitter alleged that it was related to insufficient permissions to run electron. Not sure if that's related to this issue, but I can run electron just fine, it's just react-devtools that are failing.

OS is Ubuntu 22.04 (Kubuntu), Node is v16.16.0, react-devtools 4.25.0
