My gut feeling is that an AppImage should be offered in addition to the distribution through standard repositories---which will be possible when TeXmacs will be ported to Guile 3: I do not use the current repository because when I tried it it wanted to overwrite Guile with Guile 1.8.

A possible downside of an AppImage is that the software is not available from the launcher. I do not know if the tools proposed in the AppImage documentation website work well.

Dear all,

  I've recently tried to install TeXmacs on two Linux machines and I just 
realised that it is an *immense* pain. One machine run a recent Ubuntu and the 
recipe in the website does not work. So I decided to implement an AppImage 
target in the makefile. This will allow us to do like we already do for Mac and 
Windows: ship a complete bundle with the program and all the needed libraries. 
I've started from Philippe AppImage recipe and working on it. It is still not 
finished. You find the code in my github mgubi/texmacs in the branch 


ps: if you have counterindications or there are some reasons we must not 
propose appimages to users let me know.
