How to run an appimage on Manjaro KDE?

On GUI Dolphin:

execvp: Permission denied

On Konsole:

(base) (17:50:42) [firestar@ThinkPad D]$ ./balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage
bash: ./balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage: Permission denied
(base) (17:50:44) [firestar@ThinkPad D]$ sudo ./balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage
sudo: unable to execute ./balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage: Permission denied
(base) (17:50:47) [firestar@ThinkPad D]$ balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage
bash: balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage: command not found
(base) (17:50:49) [firestar@ThinkPad D]$ sudo balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage
sudo: balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage: command not found

is it executable:

chmod +x /path_to_script

But why I cannot use sudo?

Most likely, you don’t even need sudo. You just need to set it as an executable with

chmod +x balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage

And run it with ./balenaEtcher-1.7.3-x64.AppImage

I can confirm. As long as you’re the owner of the file, you don’t need to use sudo. You can just do it from the command line.

chmod +x /path/to/some.AppImage

Well, I do that, and then mine works.

chmod +x is enough. Thanks for @archisman @Mirdarthos
