Is it possible to launch the appimages with some parameter or other trick to make them use different folders of symbols, templates, drawings?

Yes !

By example : If I want to use new folder "test-0.5" in my HOME QET directory, you need to add argument  --config-dir=   to your AppImage.

./QElectroTech_0.5-x86_64.AppImage --config-dir=/home/laurent/.qet/test-0.5/

Or If you want to use other common collection (--common-elements-dir argument) :

./QElectroTech_0.5-x86_64.AppImage --common-elements-dir=/home/laurent/0.5-test/




You could also extract Appimage and change QET arguments in AppRun file.
https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit … -AppImages

./QElectroTech_0.5-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-extract

/squashfs-root$ cat AppRun 
#! /bin/sh

cd $(dirname $(readlink -f $0))/usr/bin/
exec ./qelectrotech --common-elements-dir=../share/elements/ --common-tbt-dir=../share/titleblocks/ --lang-dir=../share/lang/ $@

Wonderful, thanks nomicons/smile 

1) Maybe you could copy or link that informations at the appimage download page?  (and later in some manual...) plus a link to https://appimage.org/ where users can learn about appimage, how to run it, and they may want to use firejail.

2) I see you have added appimage links to 0.6 and 0.7 versions at https://qelectrotech.org/download.html . You can also add one for 0.5.

3) Now you can get the news out and attract more users by getting it listed where Appimages are listed. I know of https://bintray.com/probono/AppImages , https://appimage.github.io/apps/ , maybe there are more places.

@Morganol :

FYI, if you want interest to know how I create the QET AppImages provided here on the download page:

Re: Appimage and/or flatpack to replace some distro specifik packagings?

Thanks.  I am sure it if of interest to many.  Maybe you could even put such procedures on the wiki?

Myself is on a kind of computer diet period.  Instead, i do much mechanic work and practical watering, hands-on-controls repair, repairing a tractor and such things currently. nomicons/smile
