I was using the latest appimage 1.3.16 and decided to try the snap synfig install. The snap version is 1.5? Strange… but I continued and I got a warning saying that opening my 1.3.16 file and saving it in this new version will brake the compatibility of the file with the old 1.3.16 appimage application. I was assuming they were the same version.
Anyway will the snap version always be latest version? and I can skip downloading appimages? Because I was assuming once again the snap would just have a stable version.
I tried installing the snap version and had trouble, it was pretty clunky. So I installed Synfig throuh Synaptic and everything worked perfectly.
Sorry this doesn’t answer your original question, but I can definitely recommend the easy synaptic install.
The synaptic has yet another version 1.2.2? I usually just use the latest version as it fixed a lot of the crashing for me. I am just confused about all the versions, the snap version seems to work fine but for some reason the .appimage launches a lot slower in Ubuntu 20.04 than it did in 18.04 and I was thinking of switching to the snap … but I am confused by the version and the warning message.
I think the snap version is a preliminary test version for snap packaging, we didn’t reach 1.4.0 yet
And maybe it takes more time under 20.04 because of different libs versions…
Hi! We updated AppImages. Please check updated builds:
P.S. Snap is also updated - 1.4.0 now on stable channel.
