Oh boy… I think, here too, AppImage truly is just there to confuse. It is not user friendly that one has to chmod it via command line (or GUI, same difference, too many additional steps) for permissions! No two ways about it. Snaps and flatpaks have always worked at least for me.

sudo chmod a+x LosslessCut-linux.AppImage
[sudo] password for tux:

~/Downloads/ ./LosslessCut-linux.AppImage
[21803:0328/115134.586394:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(157)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I’m aborting now. You need to make sure that /tmp/.mount_Lossle8FT943/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.

-and i can’t use the snap package on this Debian-based system. What to do? There is no .deb file at all?

Thanks.

Hello @Heidi, AppImage is the most user-friendly formats of all if you ask me. Just download one file, make it executable, and double-click to run. Done! No package manager or other tools needed. No command line needed either:

The issue you are seeing is because unlike Ubuntu and most other distribtions, Debian does not configure the kernel in a way that allows the Chromium/Electron sandbox to work out of the box by default. But the fix is easy:

Please ask Debian to allow unprivileged namespaces by default.
