Problem Description

After updating my Debian installation from Debian 9 to Debian 10, COMSOL crashes on startup.

Solution

This issue has been observed by some Debian users when updating from Debian 9 to Debian 10.

There are two possible solutions here:

  1. Make a clean installation of Debian 10.

  2. Switch from a Wayland session to a X.org session. The COMSOL User Interface sometimes does not work under Wayland after updating from Debian 9 to Debian 10, but seems to work well under Wayland in new installations.

If neither of these solutions work, please get in touch with COMSOL Support, support@comsol.com
