Use appimage files (difficulties)

Even more problems. Trying to use appimage files. You are supposed to just run the file after downloading. It is made for a reason that developers might have easier time outrolling applications with this than the standard software download apps. I really need this app, I want to get Cerebro manager and only way is to use appimage. Allways get that buzzHarfbuzz version too old (1.3.1)
I even downloaded the harfbuzz whatever it is version 2. something but still I get this message… Can someone help?

Few things to note here:

  • the file needs to be executable. chmod +x /path/to/your/app-image.file
  • At this time you may be able to double click and go; however,
  • many times I need to execute the first run with the terminal. Usually something like /path/to/your/./app-image.file

If that does not work I suggest pinging the upstream author or whoever made that package.


Alternatively you can right click the appimage to enter properties and make it executable from the permissions tab.
