appimage (Share useful apps & your experiences)

Those who have created deb or tar packages to share with other MEPIS users can create a thread in this forum to do that. Also those that request someone to create a package for them, can be posted here.

appimage (Share useful apps & your experiences)

#1

Post by manyroads » Tue Feb 12, 2019 4:44 pm

appimages...
I thought I'd start a thread where folks can share appimages they are using, testing, deleting, or whatever. :eek:

I have just downloaded a couple of new and interesting, to me, applications. They may be available in other forms, but I prefer testing with appimages because they seem not to break things. Because they are all open source you can be assured my sales commission will increase my personal wealth enormously. :snail:

Anyway here are the three new appimages I'm trying:

Qtractor: (a music production environment built on QT
Qtractor is an Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio, and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI, are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.
http://qtractor.org/ & https://www.appimagehub.com/p/1126633

Notable: Notes (quoting the dev)
The markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck. I couldn't find a note-taking app that ticked all the boxes I'm interested in: notes are written and rendered in GitHub-flavored Markdown, no WYSIWYG, no proprietary formats, I can run a search & replace across all notes, notes support attachments, the app isn't bloated, the app has a pretty interface, tags are indefinitely nestable and can import Evernote notes.

Jitsi Meet:

You're welcome @Jerry3904, I hope folks pitch in.... two of the three I just loaded also 'automagically' link themselves into the Whiskermenu/ Desktop. Pretty darn 'cool'. (more old guy terminology :bagoverhead: )

Appimage is my favorite concept for the stand alone appli (with usually all needed libraries inside), it's useful into the user's sessions. So it is independent of the platform/admin.
But here, into MX/antiX no need to have some extra appimages, Stevo, Mike, Time and the team fill the big repositories. ;-) ... except to do some tests before.

EDIT: I use XnViewMP Appimage (or deb).
https://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=38465
"XnView MP is the enhanced version of XnView Classic. It is a powerful picture viewer, browser and converter for Windows, Mac and Linux. This software can read more than 500 formats change picture size, reduce picture file size and much more!"

I run Avidemux from an appimage.
It works well.
Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs.

I've been using this one for quite some time now https://cerebroapp.com/ Search everything in few clicks. On your machine or in the Internet. I find it really useful. Also, https://kate-editor.org/get-it/ I don't think Kate needs introductions still here it is Kate is a multi-document editor part of KDE since release 2.2. Being a KDE application, Kate ships with network transparency, as well as integration with the outstanding features of KDE. Choose it for viewing HTML sources from konqueror, editing configuration files, writing new applications or any other text editing task. You still need just one running instance of Kate. I've been using Kate back from my Windows time and really like it.

@Moltke. Yes, Kate is an excellent editor. The appimage is a more efficient way of installing it I am sure. I installed KDE Standard with MXPI and Late it came in. But I also use Dolphin and some other KDE apps. Probably could have installed most with an appimage.

Indeed. Kate is one of the best editors I've ever tried/used and without all the kde stuff even better. I like sublime text too but to be honest the editor I used the most is NANO.
