@GMaq & @j_e_f_f_g: About the SnAFU with AppImage, Snap and Flatpack. I do not have a clear picture about what those exactly are and what the difference is between 'm. A separate topic might be handy. It's more a general Linux topic than a Music topic, but I don't visit general Linux forum that often anymore...

[off topic] What @GMaq said about Appimage is very usefull info for me. I really must try to get rid of the automatically installed Snap shite on my system... :roll:

Laborejo does look like a very nice tool.

I hope so, but don't get your hopes up please. It is just a hobby, won't be big and professional like musescore.

It's a pity that most appimages don't actually contain everything they need. A particular issue is musl based systems. Also, if you want AppImages to appear in things like program launchers you do need to do some integration.

There are also huge problems with Flatpaks not being able to use system-wide Audio Plugins. what's the point? In my experience Qtractor, MusE, Cinelerra-GG, Kdenlive, AviDemux, MuseScore AppImages have all functioned perfectly

I'm sure with some timely reports to the AppImage builders and if it is a systemic problem to the AppImage developers most of the ones that don't work could be fixed and some sort of launcher setup could be integrated. All of these formats have issues... the answer is not to create another format, it is to improve the best one, for my money a self contained executable binary that can be removed with a simple delete from any file manager and not spread it's guts through the filesystem is the common sense format to support.. If you have an Image that doesn't work then send the devs a bug report!

That reminds me. nils, you project-forking, demon-summoning, cauldron stirring, satanic spawn, where is that binary you said was available?
