App.on("ready', function_call) not getting executed on Ubuntu


#1

This is my main.js code. After executing npm install and npm start, the console.log(“Browser Window”) statement doesn’t get executed. This means that createWindow() function isn’t getting called itself.

const electron = require(‘electron’)
// Module to control application life.
const app = electron.app
// Module to create native browser window.
const BrowserWindow = electron.BrowserWindow

// Keep a global reference of the window object, if you don’t, the window will
// be closed automatically when the JavaScript object is garbage collected.
let mainWindow

function createWindow () {
// Create the browser window.

mainWindow = new BrowserWindow({width: 800, height: 600})
console.log(“Browser Window1”)

// and load the index.html of the app.
mainWindow.loadURL(file://${__dirname}/index.html)

// Open the DevTools.
mainWindow.webContents.openDevTools()

// Emitted when the window is closed.
mainWindow.on(‘closed’, function () {
// Dereference the window object, usually you would store windows
// in an array if your app supports multi windows, this is the time
// when you should delete the corresponding element.
mainWindow = null
})
}

// This method will be called when Electron has finished
// initialization and is ready to create browser windows.
// Some APIs can only be used after this event occurs.
app.on(‘ready’, createWindow)

// Quit when all windows are closed.
app.on(‘window-all-closed’, function () {
// On OS X it is common for applications and their menu bar
// to stay active until the user quits explicitly with Cmd + Q
if (process.platform !== ‘darwin’) {
app.quit()
}
})

app.on(‘activate’, function () {
// On OS X it’s common to re-create a window in the app when the
// dock icon is clicked and there are no other windows open.
if (mainWindow === null) {
createWindow()
}
})

The exact same code works on Windows, but on Ubuntu it is not getting executed properly.

Anyone has any idea why this is happening? Thanks!
