Express not starting in packaged electron app


#1

Hi all, I’m running Electron 1.7.5 on Ubuntu 16.04 and I’ve created an electron app that starts an express server and renders the relevant page.

Here’s the thing:

The app runs perfect via the command line: electron .

But if I package it, then it doesn’t start at all. If a double click the app icon absolutely nothing happens. Nothing pops up etc.

I’ve scoured the net and no one has had an issue like this… Is there a way to debug a packaged app? I’m still quite new to development in general.
