AppImage builds for Discord Stable, PTB, and Canary
These Discord AppImages are built using deb2appimage with dependencies from Debian Jessie’s repos. All necessary dependencies for Discord are bundled in the AppImage, so the Discord AppImages should just work on any system.
libfreetype6 is also bundled to work around the font rendering issues with unpatched
libfreetype6 >= 2.8.1 . These AppImages have been verified to run on Linux distributions as old as CentOS 6 and even as new as a rolling distribution, openSUSE Tumbleweed.
The AppImages for Discord have an
--update argument built in which will build a new AppImage in your
~/Downloads directory in case a new release hasn’t been updated below yet.
To use an AppImage, all you have to do is make it executable and run it! No install is required, but the AppImages for Discord will prompt if you’d like to add them to your menu for easy access.
