AppImage link on the Download page

Postby triplus » Sat Jan 28, 2017 12:30 pm

Based on the discussion:

https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 00#p156540

It would make sense if Download page would include the link to AppImage:

https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/?title=Download

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/rele ... 4.AppImage

If anybody fluent in Wiki editing could sort that out that would be nice.

Hi Renato.

I was thinking it should go here:

The FreeCAD team provides ready-to-install packages for Windows.png Windows (32 and 64bits), Mac.png Mac OS X (Mavericks 10.9 64bits), and Linux.png Ubuntu (LTS and current, 32 and 64bits). In addition for Linux FreeCAD is provided in AppImage format.


And in the table where it says Linux.png Ubuntu 32/64bit the same should be done for AppImage:

Linux.png AppImage (with link) 64bit

Under Notes for Linux users:

AppImage should work on most modern 64 bit Linux distributions. Download the file and make it executable. It's self contained and should be portable.


This i guess should do. I only feel bad as i gave you much more work you likely anticipated. Thanks for tackling this.

the AppImage logo, taken from the original site, can be used freely?

Hi Renato.

Yes i would say there should be no issue for you using it for this purpose.

P.S. Once you will finish your work i will double check with @probono.

Thanks Renato. The result is looking really good!

P.S. I'll double check with @probono in the original thread to see if he will be OK with the logo usage. If yes that should be it for now.
