I'm using Pop!_OS 22.04 and have run the following commands to install Orange using pip. The install commands threw no obvious errors.

pip install PyQt5 PyQtWebEngine
pip install orange3

then to run the GUI:

python3 -m Orange.canvas


qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, webgl, xcb.

Aborted (core dumped)

I saw a suggestion elsewhere that suggested installing pyqt6; but the same error occurred.

Thanks for any assistance or advice!
