A new version of the AM application manager for AppImage is available. AM is an application manager that is inspired by AUR and serves as an AppImage manager, installer, and updater. It currently contains over 1800 AppImage packages and official standalone applications for GNU/Linux, which are derived from tar and zip archives.



"AM" 5.8

Install/remove/manage third-party system libraries!

There is now support for the installation of third-party libraries, useful for those who need a specific version no longer implemented in the distribution repositories.

The libraries will be saved in "/usr/local/lib", regardless of whether you use "AM" or AppMan (for the latter, you will need to enter the password), the installation script will automatically launch the sudo ldconfig command to update the library list.


At the moment that I'm publishing this release, libfuse2 is the only one available. It will be taken from the official Debian's repositories. This is a library that is (now) no longer preinstalled in many distributions by default (see Ubuntu and Fedora) and which is vitally important to run AppImages. You can always install it from the distribution's repositories (RECOMMENDED!), but in some cases it's a pain in the ass!NOTE, it is recommended to install both "binutils" (which contains ar) and "tar" from your repository to extract .deb packages.UsageFor example, if your distribution does not have "libfuse2" in the repositories or is not easily installed, run the commands as with any other application.To install it:
am -i libfuse2
To remove it:
am -R libfuse2
The libraries will not appear in the applications list, but will be available if you search with the -q-a, and -w options.It will appear in the list of managed programs (and libraries), -f option, but will not be counted using the -l option, being a library, not an app.The installation scripts will be available at this link:https://github.com/ivan-hc/AM/tree/main/libraries/any The list is this:https://github.com/ivan-hc/AM/blob/main/libraries/libs-list I hope this can help users of certain distributions to "cheat" certain sabotage attempts. Please, go and SPREAD THE WORD and help me support and save the AppImage packaging format!
