There is the problem with opening the designer, Ignition V8.1.15, we can open the designer launcher, find the gateway, select the gateway, but after that, nothing happens.
we tried the suggested solutions: clearing the “.ignition” cache folder, clean installation of both gateway and designer launcher. But nothing worked.
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

There should be a designer log file in your home directory:
Inside this log you’ll find messages from launching that looks something like this:
INFO [LaunchUtil ] [2021/08/23 10:34:51]: Starting Java with the following parameters: nohup /home/kevin/.ignition/cache/resources/runtimes/11.0.11/bin/java -classpath /home/kevin/.ignition/cache/resources/platform/launchclient.jar/000000009D956105/launchclient.jar -Djavaws.sr.gateway.addr.0=http://172.17.0.2:8088 -Djavaws.sr.launchts=1629740091122 -Djavaws.sr.main=com.inductiveautomation.ignition.designer.DesignerStartupHook -Djavaws.sr.platform.edition= -Djavaws.sr.platform.plugins= -Xms64M -Xmx1024M -Djavaws.sr.memory.init=64M -Djavaws.sr.memory.max=1024M -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=false -Djavaws.sr.screen=0 -Djavaws.sr.scope=D com.inductiveautomation.ignition.client.launch.BootstrapSwing &
If you copy that full launch command and then run it in a command prompt you should get a better idea of what’s going wrong.
