Appimage not launching in ubuntu 24.04


I’ve just installed the official appimage of texmacs for a frecnh accent problem.

The appimage doesn’t launch on ubuntu 24.04. The error message is the following

texmacs.bin: symbol lookup error: /tmp/.mount_TeXmacOmJWPH/usr/bin/…/lib/ undefined symbol: __snprintf, version GLIBC_PRIVATE


It is the same problem reported in bug #65592. There is an incompatibility between the libcrypt bundled with the AppImage and the one on your distro (or so I understood). You can force the executable to use the system one with the environment variable LD_PRELOAD="/lib64/".
