Signal-Desktop crashes on startup

I have an issue that has come up in the past few days where the signal application will crash on startup. I am on Manjaro KDE unstable. I am not sure if this is an issue with my environment or the app itself. I started it up from the command line to look for errors, but am not the best at reading error messages so any help in that regard would be helpful. Thanks.

Unhandled Error

Re-install, it may need a rebuild.
