Ghost Desktop won't start on Mint 18

If you try to launch app trough GUI you will not get any popup or information what is wrong with it. So to test what is wrong fire terminal and run

Ghost

You will get error like this:


dario@machine ~ $ Ghost 
A JavaScript error occurred in the main process
Uncaught Exception:
Error: Unable to find a valid app
    at Object. (/usr/lib/Ghost/resources/electron.asar/browser/init.js:121:9)

    at Module.runMain (module.js:605:10)
    at run (bootstrap_node.js:424:7)
    at startup (bootstrap_node.js:147:9)

To solve issue simple run Ghost as sudo and should work normally :)

sudo Ghost
