I see there are already several posts on AppImages not working, which mostly seem app specific. I am having a problem with several appimages from several vendors, where older versions work fine, but the updated versions do not.
Although marked as executable, when I double click on them, nothing happens. Sometimes a tab will appear briefly in the task manager bar, then disappear with nothing else happening.
Some similar topics discuss opening the appimage from the terminal for troubleshooting. I am not sure if I am doing it correctly, as all I get with any appimage is command not found.
My system is Debian 10 Buster stable, with KDE 5.14.
Two examples of appimages I am having trouble with:
- Station : https://getstation.com/ Version 1.43.2 works; 1.47.0 does not
- Bitwarden: https://bitwarden.com/#download Version 1.14.0 works, but auto updates every time I run it to 1.15.2 which does not work. In both cases, alternatively downloading the newer version directly still does not work.
Also, I have tried 2 versions of Subsurface, as suggested on https://appimage.org/, neither of them worked.
