Hi, sorry for the late response. Yes, I've seen it. At first glance I thought you were talking about that effect being present in the output of created clips.

So, I can confirm those GUI effects exist in my setup as well. Must be some kind of "feature"... :roll:
Cheers!

Here's another one I've been using for a couple of months now https://github.com/webcatalog/translati ... p/releases it's a translation software which uses google-translate under the hood.

Ah, didn't see it lol Well, here's a couple more. I just checked and didn't see them listed here in the thread so, 1. Zettlr, a markdown editor https://github.com/Zettlr/Zettlr has a pretty interesting set of features and options someone might find useful. 2. OnlyOffice Desktop Editors, https://www.onlyoffice.com/en/download-desktop.aspx full MS office format compatible.

Nice finding, thanks!

As for OnlyOffice, was already included in the list by Tony.

@Ed
Can I PM you an updated "post" in order to overwrite the first one? Hopefully we can collect all submissions and get things sorted out a bit.
Cheers!

Finally, the first post has been updated thanks to Ed.
Please report back any issues you may observe.

I take this opportunity to add a couple of applications :oops: and a Reddit link (already in the original post) that I consider very useful to facilitate the creation of Appimages.

Retroshare FOSS Multiplatform-Decentralized-Encrypted Connections (with Tor/I2P) for your friends and family. Services on top of it: forums, channels, chat, mail, file sharing… even chess! :)
Tox Another FOSS Distributed-Encrypted Messaging/File sharing App
Cheers!

More recent findings...

Gaming:
"RetroArch is a frontend for emulators, game engines and media players. It enables you to run classic games on a wide range of computers and consoles through its slick graphical interface"

Support:
Official AppImage Discourse Page is plenty of useful information.
AppImages Desktop Integration has very interesting links including this flatpaktoappdir tool.


Howto:

Unbloating AppImages
===================

From this link, you can learn how to generate an AppImage "census" (a listing of every file and folder inside the App.dir) , so you can manually create your own "recipe".

This gives you the chance of suppress i.e. unwanted locales, docs, manuals, licenses and unnecessary stuff you may find.

Then, as we already know, you can repackage the AppImage (perhaps using zstd) with the appimagetool, which accepts the --comp option. So, this would be possible:

Code: Select all

$ appimagetool MyApp.dir/ --comp zstd -Xcompression-level 22
But sadly at this time, only gzip and xz compression methods are accepted.

A (deprecated) method of manually generating an AppImage follows:

Code: Select all

$ mksquashfs Your.AppDir Your.squashfs -root-owned -noappend
$ cat runtime >> Your.AppImage
$ cat Your.squashfs >> Your.AppImage
$ chmod a+x Your.AppImage
Here is the official Packaging Guide.

:)
Cheers!

When I read the code correct.it should be the same as this:

Code: Select all

$ mksquashfs Your.AppDir Your.squashfs -root-owned -noappend
$ cat runtime > Your.AppImage
$ cat Your.squashfs >> Your.AppImage
$ chmod a+x Your.AppImage
Or not?
At least the "mksquashfs Your.AppDir Your.squashfs -root-owned -noappend" line should not have created the Your.AppImage file.
In case you ran it more than once, the AppImage would get much bigger every time (since all data would be added to it), so I think "cat runtime > Your.AppImage" should be the save choice.

Anyhow, what kind of file is "runtime"? Is that created by mksquashfs ?
Cheers!
Yours Rava
