Comment (by akwala):

 >**Where did you get Tor Browser from and what version is that?**
  I downloaded it from https://www.torproject.org/download/ -- see attached
 file ''/path/to/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/tbb_version.json''. After
 verifying the downloaded *.tar.xz file with  the corresponding *.asc
 signature, also downloaded from the same page, I extracted the contents of
 the *.tar.xz file and ran
 ./start-tor-browser.desktop --register-app
  in ''/path/to/tor-browser_en-US/''. This created the file start-tor-
 browser.desktop in ''~/.local/share/applications''. The browser did not
 launch when I tried to launch it from the desktop launcher. This is when I
 ./start-tor-browser.desktop --debug
  in ''/path/to/tor-browser_en-US/'', the result of which is in the
 description of this issue report.

 >**What do you mean with " #13359 is similar but this time it finds the
 bundled libstdc++."?**
  The description of #13359 says
   >... it fails to restart because the bundled copy of libstdc++.so.6 is
 not found ...
  and the error message shows that it's using ''/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-
 gnu/libstdc++.so.6'', which is a system location.

  In my case, the error message shows that
 ''./TorBrowser/Tor/libstdc++.so.6'' is being used, which is the location
 of the bundled copy of libstdc++.so.6, and yet it complains that the
 required version GLIBCXX_3.4.22 is not found.
