When I try to run gitkraken, the app does not open. This is a brand new installation of Ubuntu 18.04. When run in the terminal it puts out this:

Gtk-Message: 23:23:20.033: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

There are questions like this one but mine is not the same and has a different error message. I have tried the proposed fixes for the other ones.

Gitkraken depends on libgnome-keyring0 package to manage keyrings. So install libgnome-keyring0 package

sudo apt install libgnome-keyring0
