Hello forum members,

we are trying to make the aiStarter run on the following plattform for a school project:

 - Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon (v 3.8.8)
 - Linux Kernel 4.15.0-20-generic
 - Intel© Celeron© CPU E1400  @ 2.00GHz × 2

The App Inventor Setup package we have installed according to the following instruction on the App Inventor site: for systems that can install Debian packages.
Basically the installation process was executed successfully and we can find the all the expected files in this directory: /usr/google/appinventor.

When trying to start aiStarter through this command /usr/google/appinventor/commands-for-Appinventor/aiStarter & we only get the response: "aiStarter no such file or directory".
The file is at this location and has the follwoing user rights -rwxr-xr-x for owner and group root. I'd expect no limitations with executing the file.

We'd be grateful for any hint why the aiStarter is not starting up.

Best regards,
