Not being an IT person, I always find usability problems when an application is offered as an Appimage. I use Kubuntu 17.10.
Downloading and making executable is not a problem. But is there a way to make using an appimage as easy as a .deb, PPA or from a Software center?
- Extra operations of moving the file from Downloads to somewhere. Unnecessary effort.
- If fact there is no indication in Kubuntu where the file should be moved to? Baffled?
- Uninstall. Many appimages create a Launcher Icon and data folder. Deleting the appimage does not delete the icon. My system is therefore messed up.
- What appimages do I have installed? Is there a way to see them like normal applications?
People say an appimages are not installed. But they do create a data folder and icons.
A .deb, PPA or an app from Software center do not have these 4 problems. Is there a way to avoid them all when using appimages?
