My RStudio, which I downloaded from RStudio.com, and installed via
$ sudo apt install ./rstudio-1.2.1335-amd64.deb
Will not launch.
Note RStudio has worked for me, on this same computer, for about 8 months. I upgraded to my current release of RStudio in late June and it worked until...
I also updated my OS to ChromeOS 76 yesterday. Now RStudio is "broken". I think that OS update is culpable. But, get this: RStudio did run, for a little while, after the OS update!
I had to install
$ sudo apt install libgl1) to get RStudio to launch after the ChromeOS 76 update too, and it did launch. It worked great. But note I did not need that package (
libgl1) before the OS update.
I also un-installed the (linux install of) Chrome (browser) on my Pixelbook... not sure if that is related to why RStuido wont launch (I hope not). But I have not been able to lauch RStudio since I un-installed Chrome. I have since re-installed RStudio and Chrome, but that did not help. I still cannot launch RStudio.
I have provided some system information below, and the error message that I see when I attempt to launch RStudio. Not sure what else to share/provide right now, but happy to provide whatever helps with troubleshooting.
Thank you in Advance for any assistance!

I have been googling... it looks like I am missing some files that RStudio wants to have... but I have not figured out where to get them yet.
