Process summary

The solution is issues in the robomongo warehouse(issues#1385)There are many people who find it and encounter this situation. Therefore, there are always solutions and have been verified by many people

I first searched in Baidu, but what I found was a mess; Later, I found the issues through Bing(Baidu can't find the content of GitHub, but Bing can. Remember)This shows thatHow important it is to be able to search GitHub’s contentAt the same time, it also shows that if there are problems in the development process, lookSee if issue mentioned your situation in the corresponding warehouse, if it is a common phenomenon, it must be mentioned here. Maybe there will be a solution. SoWe should pay attention to the role of GitHub in solving problems, not just rely on search engines, blogs and forums.
