Programs don't launch


New to Manjo. Use gnome front end.

Most of the programs won't start. This is true of Chrome browser
The icon pops up to the top left and there is a spinning for a while then it goes away.

Two of the programs I've attempted to use are the Libre Office word processing Krita

I switched from Mint. Like what I read about Manjaro.

Later on I want to give the KDE a try. I have gnome now.

Thanks in advance

Open them from terminal and provide the error you get.

is your system updated and rebooted after?
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

First welcome to the community. It would help if we knew more about your system. Here is how to provide that. How to ask for info with inxi from users during support

Dump your inxi -Fxzc0 here and bookmark it

Try updating then rebooting and see if you get the same issue.
Try starting the app in xterm and see if any errors come up, copy and paste the errors in your original post and also try searching the forum and see if there is a solution. How to search the forum?
