How to use AppImage:
- Download AppImage file
- Make it executable
- Run it
Code::Blocks AppImage still uses xterm or other terminal installed on the Linux system to run compilled program. However, the terminal window closes automatically after the program execution. To prevent this add on "Global settings" dialog (Settings->Environment, "Terminal to launch console programs" text field):
- "-hold" option for xterm ("xterm -hold -T $TITLE -e")
- "--noclose" option for KDE konsole ("konsole --noclose -e")
