I downloaded nvim.appimage v0.9.1 to run on KDE neon 22.04 5.27 base: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy. In the terminal, so far, so good.

However, looking at the nvim.appimage --help and also at :help, I haven't found how to run nvim-qt. How can I run nvim-qt?


EDIT: To answer the questions to comments so far: I figured that since nvim-qt is installed alongside nvim when I install Neovim from the package manager, that it would come along with the appimage, too. I installed the appimage because the Ubuntu repo is still on Neovim 0.6.x.

I had hoped to find an option to pass in the cli invocation in the --help or in the :help, but I did not.

I found the --appimage-mount option, so I was able to inspect the contents of the appimage. I don't see nvim-qt in the bin directory, so it seems that I'm looking for something that isn't there.

  • What makes you think, nvim-qt is part of the Neovim Appimage? Jul 3, 2023 at 19:55
  • So... is your issue solved? Frankly, I don't get what the question is about and the edit didn't help much. It might be just me being stupid. I still don't get the aim behind your actions. I presume you want to run a GUI version of Neovim. Is that what you're trying to do? Is it working? See How to ask?

  • Ok, let me rephrase my question. I want to run the GUI version of Neovim. Is that possible from nvim.appimage?
