Cannot install extensions when installing on Linux with existing account #636
I registered for Standard Notes on my MacBook. I recently bought a ThinkPad and am running Elementary OS on it.
I installed Standard Notes on the ThinkPad and signed in with my existing account. I have the Minimal Markdown extension with my paid account. Standard Notes automatically tried downloading the extension, but is not able to. The same is happening for "No Distraction Mode"
In the terminal I see a log message repeatedly,
Might be a permissions issue on your OS with extracting the downloaded archives. Can you click Help > Open Data Directory > Extensions, and tell me what you see? You should see folders, and not just zip files. If just zip files, then likely the app doesn't have sufficient privileges to extract these files. Can you try changing the privileges/ownership for the app or that directory and see if that helps?
