Phatch and MComix request


#1

Phatch is a great batch image processing and MComix is the best comic reader and editor for Linux. It seems that both are abandoned software but for me they are indispensable. Unfortunately they are no longer at Ubuntu 18.04 repositories (nor at Debian unstable repositories):
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/phatch
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/mcomix
I tried to create an appimage with each one in a previous Ubuntu system (16.04) in order to be able to run them in Ubuntu 18.04 but I’m not a developer, just a user, and I don’t have enough computer knowledge to understand the instructions.
Is there a way to create appimages easily from an application that is installed in the system? Or
is there a place where I can ask for them and somebody do it?
Sorry for my English and thank you for your answers.

No answers?

I think that making appimages of great applications that nobody is updating and are disappearing from the repositories would be a good idea. It could give this applications a new life and an impulse to the appimages idea. Am I wrong?


#3

Please ask the developers of Phatch to provide an AppImage. This project is just making tools that application developers can use to make AppImages of their applications.

¿Did you read my message? I told you Phatch is abandoware (since ten years ago).
I asked:
“Is there a way to create appimages easily from an application that is installed in the system? Or

No answers.
OK. Now I understand why AppImages are a failure.
Anyway, I found MComix and an utility like Phatch, both for Windows, that work using WINE. Bye bye.

Hi Seiko, if it is abandoned then there are no developers working on it anymore. This project is just making tools for application developers to distribute their software.

You may try to use pkg2appimage to convert existing deb files to AppImage. https://github.com/AppImage/AppImages
