Ubuntu 20.04 - how to run Data Explorer with GLEW

Hi, thanks for the well-resourced OGS web pages and tutorials!

I am new to OGS and prefer to run Linux software from the command line rather than a container.
I am able to run ogs from the command line using an adaptation of the Data Explorer bash script:

Startup script for running the packaged Data Explorer on Linux

cd bin

Although I have libGLEW on my system and can run both Paraview and Data Explorer for OGS 5, it doesn’t seem to work for OGS 6. I seem to be am missing something here.

Error message:

$ ./data-explorer.sh
QFontDatabase: Cannot find font directory /opt/conan/.conan/data/qt/5.12.4/bincrafters/stable/package/403f768b212b837c27532fbe6f583fc95016e3d7/lib/fonts

Any suggestions to run OGS > v6.2 binaries from the command line would be appreciated.
Especially Data Explorer.


ok, i think this is meant to be the way forward for linux: desk explorer v6.0.0 Beta
