Why don't you try out yourself. I think the same process can be followed for BSD too. Just try with your native package manager. Come back when you have a problem compiling.

I haven't tried so far; mainly because I don't have a BSD Live ISO that can be live-booted with GRUB2.

I agree that this is something keeping BSD back. It would be amazing if AppImages worked with BSD.

@asdedhj have you ever tried to get an AppImage run on BSD? I mean, after all, the only Linux-specific dependency we have is FUSE, which I assume is available on BSD as well. There's a few Linux specific code snippets in our code we could replace, but first, someone should test what needs to be done for proper BSD support.

While I agree, we won't be working on it unless some BSD user/developer steps up to do it. That person would, of course, have our full support.

Let's not close this, but add the "help wanted" flag instead. We wouldn't reject a PR implementing support for this, of course.

libfuse: available in all the major UNIX (both free and proprietary)

  • FreeBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • NetBSD (as a frontend to puffs)
  • Solaris/illumos
  • Can't say much for any of the more vendor-specific UNIXes, as I have no hardware to test on

I'm away-from-desk rn, I'll have to take a look at the build documentation soon
