I am attempting to use linuxdeployqt to create an AppImage for my C++ QT application but am failing so far. I wish to use linuxdeployqt with a desktop file to generate the AppImage. On linuxdeployqt’s GitHub page it give this as an example:
This issue I have here is this example seems to assume an appdir directory structure is already in place containing the desktop file, which confuses me as I assumed that linuxdeployqt would generate this directory structure.
So my questions:
- What should the directory structure look like and what files should be in it?
- Is there an example desktop file I could start with? I found the full desktop file specification a bit to much to work through.
Basically I am trying to figure out the steps required to create an AppImage once the QT application has been built.
Thanks and Regards,
