[Guide] How to install Apps as Appimage format

Dolphin has been the only file manager I have been able to scale (see guide) and use for this, so please:

sudo apt install dolphin


  1. Download the appimage
  2. Open downloads
  3. Right click (long press)
  4. Properties
  5. Permissions
  6. Check make executable
  7. Confirm with OK
  8. Launch the downloaded file

You can also make it executable with terminal:

chmod a+x file_name.AppImage
