There seem to be several options:
(a comparison from a user perspective).

I wonder whether it would be possible to achieve the same result with the guix package (in principle, everybody can install the guix package manager on their favourite distribution). Did anybody in this list try using that?

If not I will find some time later to check out how Guix TeXmacs works  on top of Ubuntu 20.10.

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.

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 wip-appimage.
