Omniverse launcher fails to launch

Just downloaded the omniverse open beta from nvidia site. However the ominiverse-launcher-linux.AppImage fails to run with the following error …

I am on Fedora 35 running with nvidia drivers

Please help.

Hello @shrinath.shanbhag!

Also, another user had the same ENOENT error in this post: Nucleus ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘…/launcher.toml’ Error

Here is the solution posted in that thread. Try this out and let me know if it helps solve your problem!

  1. Uninstall Cache
  2. Download Nucleus from NVIDIA Isaac Sim - Getting Started | NVIDIA Developer
  3. Try to install Nucleus on Omniverse launcher then it’s download setup folder in “~/.local/share/ov/pkg/nucleus-workstation-2021.2.4/”
  4. Extract and paste on “~/.local/share/ov/pkg/nucleus-workstation-2021.2.4/” the downloaded nucleus zip (step 2) file except setup folder.
  5. And try to install nucleus again.
  6. Reinstall Cache.

Also, please take a look at our Linux Troubleshooting doc here: Linux Troubleshooting — Omniverse Nucleus documentation

I had the same issue on Fedora 35 in Cinnamon, but logging with Cinnamon Software Mode solved this problem.
