Launcher icon won't start Tracker

Hello everyone,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to report a bug I encountered while attempting to launch the Tracker video analysis program. When I try to initiate Tracker by clicking on the launch icon, the program opens the initial loading window but fails to proceed further, leaving it hanging without successfully opening.

To troubleshoot the issue, I attempted to launch Tracker from the terminal as described in the troubleshoot document, i.e.calling"tracker.jar." from the terminal. The program starts successfully through this method. However, during the launch, the following error messages (see attachment) are displayed:

ResourceLoader checking for connection...https://www.compadre.org/osp/services/REST/osp_tracker.cfm?verb=Identify&OSPType=none timeout 1000
OSPLog.debug Platform: timer reset Tracker.main start
OSPLog.finer Setting launch jar path to /opt/tracker/tracker.jar
OSPLog divertSysOut = false -- bypassing OSPLog.setOut
OSPLog.finer unable to create cache at /home/axl/.config/OSP/Cache
SLF4J: The requested version 1.5.6 by your slf4j binding is not compatible with [1.6, 1.7]
SLF4J: See http://www.slf4j.org/codes.html#version_mismatch for further details.

I'm running on Ubuntu 23.10, Tracker version 6.1.5, openjdk version "17.0.9-ea" 2023-10-17

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter, and I appreciate your assistance in resolving the bug.

Best regards,

Axel F.
