Update the AppImage build scripts
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Out current appimage build scripts are outdated. They should use linuxdeployqt:


  • We also should build appimages for gmic-qt and ffmpeg: these two executables are shelled out to from Krita
  • We should decide whether to ship those inside the krita appimage, or as separate downloads, or together with the krita appimage in a zipfile.
  • The appimage should also include python
  • The appimage should include QtMultimedia, gestreamer and the gestreamer plugins

Note that linuxdeployqt doesn't run on the centos build vm we're currently running. The appimage needs a libc that's too new, and patchelf is missing, so both need to be built. Once it's build, it segfaults on CentOS 6.5:
