Hi Fredrick,

Thank you for the report.
As you can see in the error message, Chromium requires CXXABI_1.3.9 which is associated with gcc version 5.1 but your OS does not have it.
Inkdrop is built with Electron, whose supported platforms are listed here:

@anon48124669 Did you ever solve this? I was able to bump up my gcc/g++ version to 7.3.1 but I still run into the same error when I try to open Inkdrop.

No, it runs on Fedora 21 but not CentOS
