Almost there but getting: "execv error: Exec format error"


#1

People,

After a lot of time after the previous post:

I was finally able to build “Bisq-x86_64.AppImage” but when I run it I get the above error - I’ve got no idea where to start to try and debug it . . suggestions?

Thanks,
Phil.

Trying to convert packages to AppImages after the fact is doable, but it is much, much more work compared to convincing the original authors of applications to provide official AppImages in the first place. Did you ask them for an AppImage?

@probono ,

Yes, it was a kludgy attempt but worth a shot . .

I already know they don’t have time - it’s me or nothing ATM . .

If you absolutely must convert deb to AppImage then check out the pkg2appimage tool from https://github.com/AppImage/AppImages - you’d need to write a yml file for it.
