Install LogSeq on Debian 11

AppImage is a type of package for Linux that is essentially the equivalent of the portable versions of Windows. That is to say, in a single file the whole application is packed together with its dependencies.

So, the first step is to download the AppImage version of LogSeq from the GitHub profile.

Then, download the Linux version. Thereafter, from the file browser, assign it the run permissions and then double click to start it.

Set execution permissions to the downloaded file

chmod +x Logseq-linux-x64-0.6.5+nightly.20220413.AppImage
