Call for testing: ScummVM AppImage

Post by rootfather »

Hi folks,

I'm currently working on publishing ScummVM as an AppImage bundle file. So far, I made quite some progress - all I need is some testing on various platforms. The AppImage is built with Debian 9 as the base system and should be complatible with Ubuntu 16.04 or other distros from that era. Additionally, newer distros shouldn't be a problem either. Currently, support is limited to AMD64, but i386 will follow eventually.

So far, I tested the basic functionality on Ubuntu 16.04 and 20.10, Debian 9 and a current Manjaro installation, so I'm especially interested in reports from 'obscure' or ancient Linux distros, but of course, feedback from 'standard' distros is also very welcome.

If you're interested in providing some feedback, please grab the current version from https://storage.scummvm.org/index.php/s ... R/download - thanks! :)

This file is most likely even more interesting - it's an AppImage built from the current master branch. Largely untested, so feedback is welcome, especially regarding the 3D engines formerly known as ResidualVM.

Hi,

I am happy to test your AppImage. I like the format better than centralized snaps or flatpaks. Anyway it works fine on my openSUSE Leap 15.2 AMD64 machine.

Happy to test it further or test newer releases. Just let me know.

Cheers,
Bernd

Thank you very much for testing and confirming it's working! I'm currently working on refining my builds while working on the Raspberry Pi AppImages, so I expect we'll see an official x86_64 release soon(tm).
