Multiple Issues On Chromebook

I'm running the 1Password Linux Beta on my Chromebook in a Debian container ("crostini"), but after the first welcome screen the window where I can enter my login credentials is just empty/transparent. I could still enter my details and login, but even the main 1Password window had this issue. After the login and a restart it is working 50% of the time (also the login window if I go to Add an Account), but it keeps asking me for my 2FA code telling me it's wrong, even though it isn't (working for the login in the browser).
Also, when I go to settings it will just open a browser window showing this:

(URL is file:///media/fuse/crostini_1b6d15cf58cd357b2705b5b2b2b1cb20cc49c9f5_termina_penguin/.config/1Password/settings/settings.json)

If there are any logs I can provide, I'm happy to do so because when it works - it looks awesome and much better than the Android app!

    Hi @the_john19 👋

    By any chance, does the "empty/transparent" windows look anything similar to what was reported over here?

    If so, before opening 1Password, pop open terminal and run 1Password --disable-gpu and let me know if that works for you.

    Also, when I go to settings it will just open a browser window showing this:

    You can manually manage the settings within that settings.json found there in your screenshot, using these instructions.

  • Hey @Blake ! Thanks for your quick response. About the "empty/transparent" window, this was actually an issue with Chrome OS and GPU acceleration, so nothing to do with 1Password and I got it fixed! About the settings, when I edit the file with nano in the terminal and only add the app.theme option, it doesn't work and I get the following errors:

    INFO  2021-01-28T22:06:48.412 op_executor:invocation_loop [status:op-app/src/] App::new(1Password for Linux/80000000 (EN_US), Some(<redacted>))

    As soon as I remove ""app.theme": "dark"," I don't get this errors anymore.

    Apologies for the delayed reply @the_john19

    It looks like you might have accidentally put a trailing comma in your config file -- "app.theme": "dark",

    Can you try removing that rogue comma there and see if that fixes things up? 😊
