Linux Chromedriver corrupted Katalon 5.8.6


The ChromeDriver file in Linux version in Katalon 5.6.8 does not work.

Error message in console :

Test Cases/WEB/Sample_WEB FAILED because (of) (Stack trace: com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException: Unable to open browser with url: '' (Root cause: java.lang.IllegalStateException: The driver is not executable: /katalon/configuration/resources/drivers/chromedriver_linux64/chromedriver)

I think the chromedriver in 5.8.6 is corrupted.

Please see the attached pictures for comparison

Thank you

Ah sorry I forgot to set executable permissions on it. I will fix it and re-upload on the same version. The current workaround solution is call command to set ‘write’ permission for it, e.g:

chmod 777 chromedriver
