Perspective missing in project browser in linux

I have ignition 8.1.11 installed in lxd container w/ ubuntu 18.04. I am able to open the designer, but I don’t see the Perspective section in the project browser. The output console shows the below:

Looks like you’re missing some expected dependencies. Try installing libssl1.1 with:

sudo apt-get install libssl1.1

… in your LXD container/image.

I tried doing this, but the terminal states libssl1.1 is already the newest version.

I tried launching designer again, but as expected, still the same error.

i tried restarting the container, still no luck,

I’m re-reading this and I suppose I need to ask whether you’re running the Designer from within a container? Or just the Gateway itself?

Yes, I am running the designer in another container locally also.
