Appimage Functionality

Post by Akovia » Thu Mar 01, 2018 7:18 pm

I downloaded the appimage with the intent on putting it on a portable drive that I could configure with its own library of images on the same drive.

When i opened up the XnView_MP-0.89.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage, it inherited all the settings of the xnviewmp installed on my arch linux installed version. If I change the integration settings in the appimage version, it also changes them in the locally installed version. I am also unable to open the config files location or the catalog location from within the program.

Am I missing something?

Figured out, sorry.

My first appimage and didn't know you had to set them at the commandline.

Code: Select all

$ ./XnView_MP-0.89.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-portable-home --appimage-portable-config
