Thread: I'm unable to run AppImage applications

    Default I'm unable to run AppImage applications

    I'm unable to run AppImage applications in my system.

    They were running smoothly, then I had to reinstall the system, and now they don't work. The files are marked as executables of course.

    It happens with ALL AppImage files, not just for a single application (so I can rule out a problem with a particular package).

    I've tried to run them from CLI, but I get the following generic error:

    Code:
    ~/Apps/FontBase> LANG=C bash FontBase.AppImage
    FontBase.AppImage: FontBase.AppImage: cannot execute binary file
    ~/Apps/FontBase> 
    
    
    Even running them with sudo isn't helping.

    When you're troubleshooting an app you start manually, it's useful to view the generated system log entries.

    Recommend:
    1. Prepare to invoke your AppImage app, but don't actually invoke yet.
    2. Open a console, elevate to root and run the following command which will display your system log entries in real time
    Code:
    journalctl -f
    3. Now, invoke your AppImage app and view your results in the console running journalctl, you will see only what is related to your fail.

    Thank you, I already managed to solve this by changing permissions to "usr/bin/fusermount", as described here:
