Click on an AppImage and save it to the Downloads or Applications directoryTODO:
Make this "application/x-appimage"
Confirm that you want to make the AppImage executable
Notice that the AppImage now shows its correct icon, even if the elficon thumbnailer is not installed
The application is registered in the menu
It can be launched with Alt-F2 as well
When you decide to remove an AppImage, the integration is removed as well.
elementary OS is an Ubuntu-based distribution by Daniel Fore (Dan Rabbit) and others with the goal to be more beautiful, have better default applications and less need for te user to use a console. An alpha version of the Live CD is available fromhttp://elementary-project.com/downloads ... _0.1.6.iso
I am providing a small patch to the the Live CD for the improved AppImage integration shown abovehttp://portablelinuxapps.org/elementary ... iso.xdelta
It can be applied to the ISO with the tool xdelta
All customizations are made via /cdrom/casper/*.dir additions. Check that directory if you want to see the source code.
