I've just installed spacefm. When I launch it I get a warning about
not having my root editor configured, and then I get a segmentation
fault. Nothing ever appears graphically. I believe these issues are
unrelated, but I can't be sure.

 Setting a root editor in Preferences should remove this warning on
startup.   Otherwise commands run as root may present a security risk.

Just adding some info, I'm using Sway on Wayland. I noticed another
program, pcmanfm-qt was complaining about missing a plugin for wayland
support, so perhaps spacefm needs to support wayland and doesn't
currently.

I also couldn't get spacefm to launch a while ago when I tried
Wayland. However, I notice that the developer has a separate
"spacefm-wayland" repository with a link to an issue on why normal
spacefm doesn't work in Wayland.
It says it's a temporary branch so I suppose eventually spacefm will
support it, but if you want to get it working now you'd probably
have to build from here instead:

I just discovered that the segmentation fault on wayland can be avoided by
starting spacefm with:
WAYLAND_DISPLAY= spacefm
Hopefully this enables you or anyone else to be able to keep using this
great file browser while on wayland.

Thanks for sharing the tip.

As this is a Wayland-specific upstream issue unresolved [0] since 2014,
I'll close this on our side.

[0] https://github.com/IgnorantGuru/spacefm/issues/412

Thanks for reporting!

Maxim
