I am running arduino IDE under Ubunutu Linux 17.10 (64 bit version) using GNOME 3.26.2.
I loaded the Arduino IDE (version 1.8.5 for 64-bit Linux).
First off, no icon was placed on the launch bar or desktop. So, I tried launching the IDE from a terminal window.
It failed to launch. See attached PDF for results. Any suggestions as to what happened and how to remedy are welcomed.
