‘appimage-builder’ is a Pyhton3 script so to install it on Fedora and other I proceeded like that:
Into you user account:
python3 -m pip install appimage-builder
Now I’m testing if it’s enough to produce an appimage from Gambas IDE on Fedora 37

> I have just added to the IDE a new package type to the packager wizard:

> It is not entirely finished. Support for adding extra dependencies and
> extra files is not done yet.
> AFAIK, The AppImage limitations are the following:
> - You need the 'appimage-builder' tool. See:
> https://appimage-builder.readthedocs.io/en/latest/intro/install.html#intro-install <https://appimage-builder.readthedocs.io/en/latest/intro/install.html#intro-install>
> - This tool apparently works only on Debian, Ubuntu and ArchLinux.
> Please check that if you can.
> - AppImage does not like applications using OpenGL. Please check that too.
> - The resulting AppImage files are big (at least 50 Mb) and slow to
> start (I mean slower than it should).
> Otherwise, it's cool.
