    Kev, the appimage of Swift works fine for me on Debian 10 buster, but not on Debian 11 bullseye: `swift-im: symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var` I don't know nothing about appimages, so I can't help in any way, just saying...

    I would recommend Flatpak going forward, as appimage is little more than a tarball containing the built software, with the hope that the user system will contain the dependencies.

    (They won’t.)

  4. Link Mauve

    (Not necessarily.)

    i think the point is to have the most deps in the tarball ;)

    debacle: Thanks.

    Link: Well, that’s kinda true, but we *thought* we were bundling enough dependencies for it to work fairly universally (obviously we’re not).
