Cannot Get appimage to work for 3.6 and 4.1

• Sep 15, 2023 - 02:47

Hello Musescore People:

I use linux (Ubuntu 20.04) and downloaded Musescore 4 from and also Musescore 3.6 from

I moved both appimages to my desktop, checked that I owned it, and gave both executable (right click > properties > permissions > Allow executing as a file program

Then, I right clicked on the appimage and selected run as a program.

Then... nothing happened.

I followed this procedure for both 4 and 3.6

How can I make one or both of these appimages work, please?

Trying Harder


I would suggest to have a look at the logfile (MuseScore 4)
Or start the appimage from command line and read what happens.

Hi graffesmusic:

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate it.

I don't have any folder labled "local", or "share" or "Musescore" on my Ubuntu 22.04 system.

I tried each of these from the command line:

./MuseScore- --appimage-extract

Nothing worked.
