  • Hello, could you create a snap package for Linux? I’m not tech sawy but ditchd Windows for reason and those snaps always work with single click from Snap Store.

    I have never gotten those Appimages to open!! (maybe it’s my pc though).

    • We tried Snap packages but were unable to get them to work on all systems, and so now we just provide AppImages instead.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I’ve now updated the link. As discussed in the GitHub issue, it is currently in a .zip file rather than an .exe file to resolve issues people were reporting with the installer executable.

  • Hello,
    recently i’ve switched to Windows 11 from 10 and it seems that not a single version of the app can open/boot. It installs properly, but that’s about it. Any idea why that might be?
