How to create an AppImage?


Where i can find the information about how Krita and Subsurface Appare Built ?
and why build on Travis CI, this software is for what ???




Hi, can you tell me the necessary steps (in detail please) to convert an app into the appimage format?

I use KDE Neon (based on Ubuntu 16.04), which only works with 64bit and there is no way to install 32bit old software like Adobe Reader for Linux.

The application I would like to convert (to use if needed) is Adobe Acrobat for Linux.

Get the Deb from here:

Dependencies for Adobe Reader


Thanks so much.


Please ask Adobe to provide Adobe Acrobat for Linux as an AppImage.

The debs you posted are 32-bit - are there 64-bit ones, too?
Practically every Linux distribution comes with a PDF reader out of the box, so there may not be much interest in Adobe Reader for Linux.


Thanks for the answer.
I’m sorry, I understand that my request is a bit annoying. And I understand also that Adobe would have no interest in answering me if I asked them to provide old Acrobat Reader for linux as AppImage. Moreover, in all these years they have not shown interest in updating their Linux version.

But I know there are numerous PDF readers under Linux, my favorite is Okular but I have a problem with documents that have legal value and that I can not read and print with any software under Linux (I tried them all)l. I also tried Master PDF Editor (which is very efficient) and Foxit Reader (which is also available under Linux) but none of them works with XFA modules. Only Acrobat can read them and print.

Unfortunately I have this problem. Under Wine Acrobat works very badly, freeze continuously. I downloaded and tried practically all the versions and combinations, even with the PlayOnLinux scripts. Does not work.

Unfortunately, Adobe has abandoned Acrobat Reader for Linux and has never created a 64bit version.

This is the reason for my request.



Hi there again, right now i am using “Devuan Jessie”. in some part of site or forum.

you have a tutorial for make packages without debs ???
just binary files.



We generally recommend that the author of an application should do this. So please ask the author of the application you are interested in to provide an AppImage.
