Error “The SUID sandbox helper binary was found…”

I tried to run Anytype for the first time (thank you for the onboarding session!) on (linux) Debian 10 Buster: $ ./Anytype-0.18.28.AppImage. The following common error with Electron Framework occurred:

[6770:0706/214917.579787:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(158)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /tmp/.mount_AnytypFyrchs/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.

I found solutions [here](Solve “The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly.” (3 solutions!) | by Authmane Terki | Medium) and [here](https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63780918/building-electron-linux-distro-the-suid-sandbox-helper-binary-was-found-but-i). We have to use the --no-sandbox option or set a kernel variable: sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1.

$ ./Anytype-0.18.28.AppImage --no-sandbox

I hope this could help some people.
