Convert SDL2 Linux Game Into Stand Alone Linux Executable?


We have a new SDL2 video game for Linux.
Current version is a compressed ZIP file.
In ZIP is resources and source code which is built with a makefile.
Would it be difficult to make a stand alone Linux executable? (like AppImage?)

Game uses the following libraries:

  • SDL2
  • SDL2_Image
  • SDL2_Mixer
  • SDL2_TTF

Game can be downloaded below.
Let us know, thanks!

Sorry, should be ok now - question above still stands…

No it’s not that difficult: Manjaro is an Arch derivative so uses PKGBUILD to build packages.


I recently watched a video explaining the basics to create an AppImage, it is pretty easy to do.

//EDIT: misread the topic, you don’t want to create an AppImage.
