I know that the preferred method to create appimages is to use travis, and that targeting the oldest LTS Ubuntu is the preferred method. But I would like to make an AppImage on Precise - Ubuntu 12.04. The reason is that the codebase doesn’t seem to compile on any higher LTS. (The codebase is here, https://github.com/pdbourke/vlc-warp-2.1
and my experience with building it is here,
Just now, I tried building it again on a VM - worked.
Then tried making an AppImage with the same sequence of steps as in the example travis script. But linuxdeployqt-continuous-x86_64.AppImage complained that libraries are too old.
Then I tried the oldest existing linuxdeployqt release (5). That also complained the same thing.
Then I tried compiling the earlier release of linuxdeployqt (4) from source. In the build instructions, it was recommended to use QT Creator appimage 5.7.0 from
But that QtCreator-5.7.0-x86_64.AppImage also complained that libraries are too old!
So, my questions are:
Should I try to go ahead and install QT creator from ubuntu’s repos, and then try to build the linuxdeployqt project ? Would that work?
Is there any way in which I can bundle all required depencies, either using linuxdeployqt or manually? Maybe using ldd ?
Or is this whole project not feasible at all?
(Sorry if this is already covered somewhere, just couldn’t find anything current.)
