AppImages are portable software that don't need root permission to be run. They can be run without root permission:

user $chmod +x ExamplePackage.AppImage
user $./ExamplePackage.AppImage

Dependency

Most AppImages require sys-fs/fuse:0 on slot zero to be run.

user $ ./ExamplePackage.AppImage

dlopen(): error loading libfuse.so.2

AppImages require FUSE to run. You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage if you run it with the --appimage-extract option.

See https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/FUSE for more information

This error can be solved by installing sys-fs/fuse:0. Slot 0 has version 2 of fuse required by most AppImages, whereas sys-fs/fuse:3 which has version 3 of fuse, this is installed by default if no slot is specified and doesn't solve the dependency problem.

root #emerge --ask sys-fs/fuse:3
