Why does Speedx not launch from dash or terminal?

in flag

Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. Ubuntu Software says that it is installed, but Synaptic Pkg Mgr detects nothing in searching for "speedx". When I click on the Speedx icon in dash, nothing happens. When I use terminal, I get $ speedx This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland-egl" in "". Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Aborted (core dumped)

I reinstalled the application with no success. I searched the internet for the above "failure" and tried the suggested fixes to no avail. Bug?

The application you installed is a snap, and there's some troubleshooting tips on the snap store page for the application, here:

The reason you don't see it in Synaptic is because that application only manages deb based packages, not snaps.

Thanks. No success with tips, so posted a bug report at snapcraft link.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
