What did you do with the contents of the tarball? How do you start the browser? Do you apply LD_LIBRARY_PATH correctly when starting the browser?

The contents of the tarball included the executable, but I may not understand your question. To run the executable I can cd to its location and do $ ./basilisk (I actually do it with the shortcut C-A-b, which amounts to the same thing.

Your supposition is correct. I downloaded the skypeforlinux deb file, placed into a local repository, created a Packages.gz file that incorporated it, did Aptitude update, and then installed skypeforlinux. I've purged it, but that didn't help. My mouse still frozen. I had not heard of Fllatpak. I do not see systemd among
its dependencies. Incidentally I found that C-A-DEL does not stop the xserver. I removed the lock file and killed its process. Running startx again did not solve the problem of no mouse.

The xserver log file now has

_XSERVTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: ... SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
(EE) Fatal server error
(EE) Cannot establish any listening sockets - make sure an X server isn't already running

I tried $ startx --:1 without luck.

I tried # apt-get --reinstall xorg without luck

Sorry I was not clearer. As for Basilisk, I downloaded the tar.xz file from the Basilisk site and ran unxz and then tar on it to unarchive the executable.
As for Skype, I did # aptitude install skypeforlinux.

When startx no longer worked. the log reported these errors:

(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: no such file or directory
(EE) Unable to find a valid framebuffer or device
(EE) open /dev/fb0: no such file or directory
(EE) Screen 0 deleted beacsue no mating configuration
(EE) VESA(0): Cannot read int vect
(EE) Screens found but none have a usable configituration

These errors are why I ran # dpkg-reconfigure xerver-xorg. I expected but did not get a feedback from the command (a long time since I last used it) and so
ran # X -configure without checking to see if the former command had worked.. This seemed to fix the problem and gave plenty of feedback. Now I can
start Basilisk, but now I've lost the mouse. There were no additions in Xorg.0.log,  I ran # dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but failed to recover the mouse.
When I log in as root, still no mouse.

I'm not sure what config files to remove and still leave xorg installed. I lack all the files appended to man xorg except the executable. Why wouldn't a reconfiguration of xorg overwrite any old damaged configurations ?

Help much appreciated, but things went from bad to worse. To install Basilisk I used the tar.xz file from the web site. Incidentally, on my desktop using Beowulf beta I also couldn't get Basilisk to work until I copied over the version I has used on Ascii.

So on my laptop installed firefox-esr to get a browser, and it worked. Then I installed skypeforlinux. When started the Skype  GUI was blank/empty and most menu items inoperative, including status. When I shut down my desktop I could not longer start X as user.

I got x server back by doing # X -configure  (# dpkg -reconfigure xserver-xorg didn't seem to do anything). I go back to run basilisk. This time it started, but my mouse frozen. I stopped the x server, logged in again but but starting basilisk still freezes mouse. If I don't find a solution I'll try to revert to the version of Basilisk that worked with Ascii.

I have the Beowulf beta installed on a machine that uses the Basilisk browser. The browser starts OK.

Now I install Beowulf 3.0.0 on a laptop along with Basilisk. Basilisk won't start because: "XPCOMGlueLoad glue error for /usr/local/share/Basilisk/basilisk/basilisk/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM."

This is a newer version of Basilisk, but I don't know the version of my old Basilisk. Required dependencies are
