Description

AppImageLauncher
https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher

AppImages provide a nice way to users to use applications, alongside flatpack and snaps. While they are simple to use, having low-friction integration is welcome. AppImageLauncher streamlines the process for end-users by: moving them to a dedicated folder, setting the executable bit, and integrating the app into the user's DE ( using .desktop files, etc). This is done with a prompt when clicking an AppImage file for the first time. It also provides dialogs for automated cleanup/removal for AppImages.

While this kind of support for AppImages would be a nice addition to Budgie as first-party support, AppImageLauncher can provide this for Solus users without needing to make any changes to the existing environment.

Closing in favor of appimaged.

@DataDrake, just for clarification, does this mean that there are plans to add appimaged as a default or optional package in the future? I do not currently see it in the repos. I don't particularly care which package is used by solus, just that options for easier AppImage support are available.
