What is an AppImage for Linux?


The idea behind the AppImage format is "an app" = a file. Each AppImage contains an app and all files that the app needs to run. In other words, each AppImage does not have any other dependencies than is included in the targeted base operating system. Like for example an, ".exe" file in Windows.

No more searching for dependency files.

The software needs to be able to run, set the following file rights:


Open a terminal window and type the following:

chmod a+x AppImage filename

Press Enter.

./AppImage filename

Press Enter.
