AppImage

AppImages require FUSE to run

Hi,
I tried to run AppImage in my CentOS 7.6 and received this message: “AppImages require FUSE to run”.

I’m wondering, as I understand it, one of the biggest advantages of AppImage over other packaging solutions is that AppImage runs on the common distributions out-of-the-box. but when I tried it I see that it requires a FUSE as a prerequisite…

I’v created a Java Spring based cli tool and I want to provide my clients the best and easiest deployment…
What is the benefit of AppImage over tar file with the jar? with AppImage I need to ask them to install FUSE as a prerequisites and with the tar file I need to ask them to install java as a prerequisites…

Thanks

FUSE comes as part of the default desktop with most Linux distributions. The advantage is “one app = one file”, no unpacking nor installation needed.
