May I ask you why appimage launcher is included by default?

I don't really know since I am not in charge of the KDE image. But I assume it was just honoring increasingly popularity of appimages and the attempt to provide OOTB support for common needs ...
I have meanwhile fixed the packaging issue in new package 1.2.2-2.

I was able to update to the latest version, but appimages no long launch. Has anyone else run into this problem? I downgraded the package to a previous release, and do not encounter problems.

yeah I tried to launch appimage and it does not start too

Having a lot of issues with appimages not launching (KDE Stable): https://forum.manjaro.org/t/appimagelauncher-problems-github-closed-issue-unable-to-run-appimages-kde-stable/85522/34
Thread includes link to github thread where dev says there's an issue and only doing a few reboots seems to fix it. I'm needing to reboot at least twice, on 5.0 or 5.1 kernel.

@xdar I'll try downgrading, if I may ask which version you're using.
