Linux apps that run anywhere

Today i’m feel like a nerd. SO i explain to you something very useful for any digital designer that want to be free from closed software. Be real free with Appimages! Using AppImageKit you can package desktop applications as AppImages that run on common Linux-based operating systems, such as RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian and derivatives. The AppImage is a format for packaging applications in a way that allows them to run on a variety of different target systems (base operating systems, distributions) without further modification.

To run an AppImage, simply download it. Then, make it executable.

 $ chmod a+x Subsurface*.AppImage 
and run!

$ ./Subsurface*.AppImage 
That was easy, wasn’t it?

After this, you can virtually execute your appimages in every linux distribution, without install ton of megabyte of dependencies, also into USB linux live system! In this video, Joe Collins explain better how to do it. Also David Revoy, in his Blog, explain the same.

From two years ago to now a lot of open source projects adopt this method to distribute softwares, like krita. You can also keep update and download appimages from here: https://dl.bintray.com/probono/AppImages/

Good stuff, guys! Happy Appimaging!
