I'm a long time freefilesync user on Windows and lately on Ubuntu 18.04

Lately, I have been unable to launch 10.12 (or any version) on 19.04 using the same files/strategy.

I don't get an error or crash or any error. It just doesn't start. Is 19.04 not compatible/supported?

Any help is much appreciated!

Do you have gnome-schedule installed?

What error messages are shown when you start FreeFileSync via command line?

No I don't have it installed. Is it normally installed or available for 18.04 and 19.04?

Here is what I get:
~/Downloads/FreeFileSync_10.12_Linux/FreeFileSync$ ls
Bin FreeFileSync.desktop Misc 'User Manual.pdf'
CHANGELOG Languages RealTimeSync
FreeFileSync LICENSE RealTimeSync.desktop
(base) :~/Downloads/FreeFileSync_10.12_Linux/FreeFileSync$ FreeFileSync
FreeFileSync: command not found
(base) :~/Downloads/FreeFileSync_10.12_Linux/FreeFileSync$

Fixed!

Had to install the following:
sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0
sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module

Then it loads ok
