Subject description: Easily Run And Integrate AppImage Files With AppImageLauncher
 

Did you ever download an AppImage file and you didn't know how to use it? Or maybe you know how to use it but you have to navigate to the folder where you downloaded the .AppImage file every time you want to run it, or manually create a launcher for it.

With AppImageLauncher, these are problems of the past. The application lets you easily run AppImage files, without having to make them executable. But its most interesting feature is easily integrating AppImages with your system: AppImageLauncher can automatically add an AppImage application shortcut to your desktop environment's application launcher / menu (including the app icon and proper description).

There are deb files to be installed for Ubuntu and Debian (derivatives) : https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher/releases
