fman fails to start on Fedora 29 #561

It works on Fedora 28. On 29, you get

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".
Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

A temporary workaround is to start fman with the following command:

LD_PRELOAD=/lib64/ /opt/fman/fman

Also, when we run the 'Install plugin' command we get this:

I just released fman 1.4.3 that now does start on Fedora. I'll open a new issue for the failing InstallPlugin command.
