FreeFileSync is not working

Hello Community. I installed MX Linux on my computer before and when I installed FreeFileSync it worked. In all arch Linux based distributions this app definitely didn't work. The console output is as follows:

[[email protected] freefilesync]$ ./FreeFileSync

(FreeFileSync_x86_64:29957): Gtk-WARNING **: 09:45:19.472: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",
Error starting "/opt/freefilesync/Bin/FreeFileSync_x86_64".
Killed by signal 11
[[email protected] freefilesync]$

What can I do about it? can you help me?

I believe I might try installing and running this package. AUR (en) - freefilesync-bin if you haven't already. Your description is rather sparse. And have you looked at the user Comments and checked for bug reports?

I don't know how to fix your issue, but depending on your use case an alternative to consider would be Syncthing. It's in the official repository, it's very simple to set up, and there is even an F-Droid app if you want to set up a folder to send files to/from your phone.
