Try this:
1, get in the directory where you extracted the tar.gz file;
2, type “./dynalist” in the terminal and run it…
PS: and now you can see the icon in your software menu too…

Also make sure you don’t run “./dynalist” as root, since I was getting “No protocol specified”, but ran it normally when I did it as a non-root user.

Hello!

I’m Elementary OS user (based on Ubuntu 18.04). Please, help me to install Dynalist on my laptop.

I downloaded dynalist.tar.gz archive from official page: Download - Dynalist. And I create Apps folder into my Home folder. And extract archive into my Apps folder.

Then I go to Dynalist folder (extracted) in terminal. And write: sudo ./dynalist. It launch my application, and app is correctly work.

But I don’t see Dynalist app into my applications menu.

Also for launch app, it needs sudo-permissions. What should I do to add Dynalist in applications menu (with icon)? Don’t convenient to launch app each time with terminal.
