Appimage not starting

I wanted to test out my app on manjaro so I downloaded the appimage from here.

I double clicked the app and confirmed I wanted to run it and then it didn’t run.

I read that you need the appimagelauncher but why is that not pre-installed? I’m setting up this laptop for my parents. Running an app should not require a package installation. To add to the pain, the system is already performing an upgrade.

You don’t need it, but it is handy. All it does is move the AppImage from the original location (probably ~/Downloads/) to ~/Applications/ and generate a desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications/ so it appears in the desktop menu.

It sounds like you already have appimagelauncher installed as it prompts to either run it once or integrate and run. Sounds like you chose to run it once.


❯ ./product-name_0.2.0_amd64.AppImage
thread 'main' panicked at 'data.len() must fit the width, height, and row_stride', /home/runner/.cargo/registry/src/
note: run with `RUST_BACKTRACE=1` environment variable to display a backtrace

Thanks, I’ll report this to Tauri.
