Coming from Linux Mint, I decided to seriously test Zorin OS.
First question: is there a way (like on Linux Mint) to create a launcher for an Appimage application?
If so, how to proceed?
thank you in advance and please excuse me for my English because I have to use a translator, not being English speaking
I had to update my Inkscape version when delivering a training session to a Windows user over https://meet.jit.si. The only viable option for me as I did not want to use Snap or Flatpak was AppImage. The way it usually works is that you download the AppImage, Extract/run it in the folder you downloaded it to and then launch the application from there. But at the moment I am still using an older version, 1.02, and not on Zorin.
Doing so on Zorin OS Lite is very similar to how to do it on Mint.
However, I am not sure about Core... Perhaps a regular Zorin Core user can help.
Can you please say whether you are using Zorin OS Lite or Zorin OS Core?
Thank you for your answer.
I use Zorin 16 Lite on an old computer, there I know how to do it.
My problem is on my main computer with Zorin OS Core.
Have you tried while marking it as an executable?
Perhaps this can help.
- right click folder with app image and select "open terminal here"
- type in command "chmod +x nameofyourappimagehere" that makes it executable
- type in command " ./nameofyourappimagehere" that will run the program or just right click and select "run"
Thank you for your answers
