[Linux] Failed to start triggercmdagent.service

I can't get the background service to start. I installed it via the TriggerCMD tray icon, but I received no visual feedback other than the authentication prompt to run

I'm using TriggerCMD 1.0.1 on Linux Mint 18.2.
Off topic, but I'm not able to login to the TriggerCMD Android app via Google+. I get a 403 page with Error: disallowed_useragent. Google no longer allows OAuth requests to be made via webview. Also, it seems like it's just a web wrapper anyway, I may as well just use the mobile site.
@Yochanan , you're correct about the Android app - for now it's just a web wrapper with a cache. I'll work on updating the app to remove the Google login option for now. I recommend you go to https://www.triggercmd.com/user/computer/list and select "Add to Home screen". That's what I did. That way if you're already logged in, it goes right to your computer list.
About your background service - I'll install Linux Mint on a VM to troubleshoot why that option in the tray icon isn't working. I've only tested on CentOS and Ubuntu so far.
In the meantime, would you mind trying this?
EDIT: Correction, on Mint this is the path, and I noticed the file is not executable, so run:
sudo sh /usr/share/triggercmdagent/resources/app/src/installdaemon.sh
You don't want to switch to root first because you installed as your non-root user so you want it to look for your ~/.TRIGGERcmdData directory in your home directory.
@Yochanan , I installed Linux Mint 18.2 with KDE as my window manager, and I was able to install the service via the tray icon. What window manager are you using?
