Fatal Error on Startup - libwebkit

Hello all,
I’m receiving a fatal error on startup that appears to be related to libwebkit. When starting the application from a command line, java throws a fatal error and returns me to the command prompt. This occurs with a fresh installation and also occurs with newly installed older versions.

Things were working great until this morning when a round of updates hit my machine. I’m not sure what changes were made on the machine to precipitate this error.

Here’s my details. Any help is appreciated.

  • Pop OS 20.10
  • 32GB memory
  • Errors thrown in Knime versions 4.2.2, 4.2.5, 4.3.0, 4.3.2

Command line error code:

Which version of libwebkit are installed on your system? If not already present, can you provide the ones mentioned here: Problem running SWT browser - #2 by shaharf ?
