Might I suggest making the script pass through arguments, like

LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=true /opt/appimages/freecad.AppImage "$@"

to make opening .FCStd files with file managers work correctly?

edit: it's also necessary to add %F to Exec in the desktop file.

Ok, I've updated it since some users weren't facing any issues.

Hi. I have no issues when running the AppImage. Both the version in this package and the most recent version from the website run with no issues. (FreeCAD_0.18-16131-Linux-Conda_Py3Qt5_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage)

According to this thread, 0.19 will fix the issue.

Hi guys, sorry for the long time to bring some feedback.

Unfortunately, it seems that the AppImage release of FreeCad isn't working properly, as reported by @nTia89 (you can check this by downloading the appimage itself and then trying to run it).

Since I don't know how to fix this, and I don't see the point in updating it to a broken version, I'll leave it as it is until it gets fixed.

Freecad doesn't start; I get this error:

[mattia@arch-xps freecad-appimage]$ freecad

EDIT: I tried both current PKGBUILD version and the one just released, and they suffer of the same issue...

Can you add the fuse2 as a dependency? If you try to run without fuse2 it just prints this:

dlopen(): error loading libfuse.so.2

AppImages require FUSE to run. 
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage 
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option. 
See https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/FUSE 
for more information

I just updated it and skipped the checksum. Hope it works for you guys now.

wilriker commented on 2019-05-21 18:06

Sorry to come back again but I have no clue what GitHub is doing. Installed the latest package today. First attempt checksum failed. Removed the already downloaded appimage file. Redownloaded from GitHub then it worked. Just tried to install the same package on another machine. Again first attempt failed with wrong checksum. Removed downloaded appimage, redownloaded, failed again. GitHub seems to provide different files from different mirrors. Can you please remove the checksum check until the next release of FreeCAD?

igormp commented on 2019-05-19 20:41

@moj thanks for the heads up, I just updated the checksum

moj commented on 2019-05-19 20:24

I think the checksum in PKGBUILD is just wrong, I replaced it with the actual one (a6d886127dadc910f8e2f35a89922c9a77ca529defbf9a034bb2087b14bbb9cd) and it works
