This is a great step by step, just add this step to run ok:
on Fedora 27 is necessary create a link to under gitkraken folder:
cd /opt/gitkraken
ln -s /usr/lib64/

Copy link

I did it this way:
cd /opt/gitkraken
ln -s /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

Thanks for the script.

I also needed to install libgnome-keyring before GitKraken would run on Fedora 27. Thanks for the script!
