Wings3d x64 appimage creation

I have been trying to create an appimage for wings3d 2.2.4 x64.
I have made one on mx-18, and got it to work on mx-19 and bionicpup, but it wont work on mint, xubuntu-18.04.
I made it on mint-18, but it wont work on mint-19.2, xubuntu-18.04 or mx-18–19.
I made it on xubuntu-18-04 only woks on xubuntu-18.04.

I am not a dev of wings3d.
the dev has no time to create another package type, so i’m trying.
wings3d is based on erlang
I have no programming experience. I downloaded the deb files and dependencies and used the extracted file to create the appdir with pkg2appdir.
some of my problems making this cross os seem to be due to erlang-wx.
WX Failed loading “wxe_driver”@"/tmp/.mount_wings3MjbwJT/lib/wx-1.8.7/priv"
can someone with experience making appimages give this a try, or help me figuring this out?
like i said i have no coding experience, i cant even figure out how to get stuff from the repos using yml.
this appimage creation process is a real eye opener for me.I think i have reach the limits of my understanding, but will try to learn more.

Thanks for any consideration.

the key was in the second error. added pakg for libjpg and libpng, and now it works on
mx-18, mx-19, bionicpup, mint-18, mint-19, xubuntu-18.04

give this one a try I think it’s a winner.

tried with Linux Mint 19 but it doesn’t work:

Can anyone help with getting opencl working from inside an appimage?

Hi, please ask the authors of Wings3d to provide an officially supported AppImage. Thanks! :+1:
