Today the app did not launch from GNOME, and when I tried from the CLI it gave me the error below. Because the package was not updated in months, I guess this is arising from some interplay with some recent upgrade in my Arch Linux installation. I had already upgraded today and rebooted today (twice for a good measure) before launching the app.
