Xowa fails to launch on Fedora 26

asked 2018-04-21 06:19:48 -0500

I'm trying to use the software Xowa for offline access to Wikipedia, but it encounters an error on startup and fails to launch.

I have retrieved Xowa from here: http://xowa.org/home/wiki/Help/Downlo...

The 32-bit and 64-bit versions gives the same error:

./xowa_linux_64.sh
