Not working on Debian 10 SUID Error


I wan’t to try out radicle, downloaded app and sadly system won’t run it.
I am running Debian 10.
The error I get is this:

[7207:1205/] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /tmp/.mount_radiclHy5nT5/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.
Trace/breakpoint trap

I cannot chmod that file, it’s like it doesn’t exist, tried with sudo and everything.

My guess is that this is some Electron problem/

Any ideas on how to fix this ?

I had the same issue on my Debian computer. I couldn’t find a “good” workaround, but running the AppImage with --no-sandbox got it to open.

Hej, thanks for bringing up the issue and help provide a short-term fix. Could you maybe take a moment and open an issue over at

This will help us keep track of it and look into it once we have capacity for it.

I wouldn’t run stuff as root if I really don’t have to hah

Here, done
