AppImage

[SOLVED] Automated desktop integration of new AppImages, without a popup


#1

Hi,

I build AppImages of OpenRA and its mods (using the buildpackage.sh script found in OpenRA and most mod’s repositories) from their latest git commits and I’d like to know a way I can automatically integrate them into my system (i.e. with desktop config files and icons) whenever a new AppImage is built, without needing to run them or deal with that popup AppImageLauncher provides asking whether one wishes to run once or integrate into system and then run. I already know how to delete desktop config and icon files belonging to older versions of my AppImages, it’s merely automating this process of integration, without needing to deal with what would become an annoying popup (as it would be popping up all the time) and without needing to run the AppImage immediately after integrating (which would also getting irritating if I write scripts that automatically build a new AppImage whenever a new commit is detected).

Thanks for your time and patience,
Brenton

Oops silly me, I thought appimaged wasn’t doing this any more, turns out it simply wasn’t running and that’s why I wasn’t get automated integration without a popup.
