Best Options for Linux (Ubuntu) Install


#1

After downloading the electron app package, where/how do you install it on Ubuntu? I want to add it to my applications list and not store the app in my downloads folder.

Appimages are not installed but run as a portable application. If you want the Etcher app in your menu, run Etcher, right click the icon and then click “create shortcut”. Etcher will then be in your main menu under one of the listed categories. I hope this helps. You can move the appimage to any folder you wish before running and adding the shortcut.
