In order for us to quickly assess the situation when you contact us either via our github issues page or a customer services representative - please include your log file. The log file is an automatic record of any errors that pop up during the run time of the launcher. Including this file will make it much easier for us to assess your case as quick as possible!

Just as a tip, you can open any path (and most files!) using the open command in terminal. In order to open the ~/.labslauncher directory (folder) you can type the following in terminal:

open ~/.labslauncher/

Or if you would like to open up the log itself to read it you can run:

open ~/.labslauncher/labslauncher.log
