Linux AppImageΒΆ

Current support for building Linux AppImages is in its early stages of development.

A few notes:

  • Creating AppImages requires passing the --icon-path option, pointing to a PNG file to be used as an icon.
  • The required .desktop file, embedded into the AppImage, currently has a hard-coded category of Education.
  • By default, pup uses an x86-64 AppImageTool from It can be overridden by setting the PUP_AIT_URL environment variable to the URL of an alternative AppImageTool AppImage.
