I'm making an "Available as AppImage" button to add to the readme files of our stuff. Or if people want to use them, I'll upload the SVG to a repo.

Here are 20 variants. Which one do you like?.

PSA: Firefox will be added as an AppImage to use with the Firejail sandbox. nx-desktop-settings-legacy was just updated to add the launcher for this purpose. However, users should uninstall the Firefox Debian package to avoid a file conflict.

PSA: We've updated a couple of our packages. To upgrade them, run the following commands.

- sudo apt update
- sudo apt-mark unhold cgroupfs-mount
- sudo apt install --only-upgrade nitrux-repositories-config
- sudo apt upgrade

PSA: We've just updated our package openrc-config to version 0.0.9 *finally* enabling other TTYs by default.

This update enables TTY 2 to 6.

PSA: We've also updated the package nvidia-x11-config to install the Nvidia proprietary driver version 470 instead of 460 to better support kernel 5.14+.

Cont.

To update it, run the following command.

sudo apt update && sudo apt install nvidia-x11-config=0.0.4

To install these other kernels, run:

sudo apt install linux-image-mainline-lts
sudo apt install linux-image-mainline-lts-5.4
sudo apt install linux-image-mainline-current
sudo apt install linux-image-libre-lts
sudo apt install linux-image-libre-current
sudo apt install linux-image-liquorix
sudo apt install linux-image-xanmod
sudo apt install linux-image-xanmod-cacule

After some time working on it I was able to put together an #AppImage following my proposal to a new format version (type 3).

github.com/AppImageCrafters/ap

It's a gnome-calculator build contained in a single file that doesn't break the ELF specification and has a much more flexible way of storing the update information and signatures.

For more details about my specification proposal, please check: notes.azubieta.net/s/BkdOKxgsd

As always, comments and contributions are welcome!

A few days ago, we released version 2.0.0 of MauiKit and the Maui Applications. These updates will be present in the next distribution release (end of August); however, continue reading if you'd like to try them before then.
