Dear Sirs,

I have followed the procedure and I obtained a working .deb installation file using the latest verison "Scratch-desktop v3.26.0"
After installed into Linux Mint 20.3 MATE 64bit, I have the ""SCRATCH IS LOADING" screen..
Then I try to modify the main.js
I had problem installing via terminal, of "npm install asar", so I used SNAP to install asar...

sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref && sudo apt update && sudo snap install asar --classic

after that,
cd /lib/scratch-desktop/resources sudo asar extract app.asar modif cd modif sudo nano main.js (and into the line "nodeIntegration: true" I changed it nto: "true,\n contextIsolation: false\n") cd .. sudo asar pack modif app.asar
Now If I launch Scratch, NO screen appear, anche the program close without showimg the Scratch windows (this is differemt from the starting issue with freezing screen "SCRATCH IS LOADING" )

Try to start Scratch via terminal, I obtain:

linux@Mint:/lib/scratch-desktop/resources$ /usr/lib/scratch-desktop/electron "/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/Scratch-desktop"
A JavaScript error occurred in the main process Uncaught Exception: SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier at Object.call (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1323:181) at e (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:25:22) at Object.call (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1328:97) at __webpack_require__ (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:25:22) at module.exports../node_modules/ajv/lib/ajv.js (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:96:10) at Object.<anonymous> (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1:1052) at Module._compile (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:1116:14) at Object.Module._extensions..js (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:1169:10) at Module.load (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:988:32) at Module._load (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:829:12) libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null) [2870:0122/203824.204885:ERROR:viz_main_impl.cc(161)] Exiting GPU process due to errors during initialization libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null) [2886:0122/203824.280940:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(376)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.

Seems that the ASAR procedure to modify the file main.js has broke someting...Is it possible to solve this problem?
Many thanks in advance for your job!
