Not sure if it’s a bug, but the latest SC AppImage seems to be missing libfuse.so.2
I often use AppImages and have never encountered the following error:
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.

PRETTY_NAME=“Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)”
Linux version 4.9.0-4-amd64 (
email@example.com) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.51-1 (2017-09-28)
This cannot be fixed in the Shotcut AppImage. The AppImage runtime itself requires FUSE, not Shotcut or its dependencies.
Will have a look at my installation of AppImage as others seem to run.
Decided to take another route and extract the AppImage.
All went well until I try to run it.
Comes up with the error:
Aparently this is something related to QT and I can’t find that lib anywhere.
Any help appreciated.
All sorted, needed libharfbuzz.so.0 and libglib-2.0.so.0 ( 64 bit versions) as they were not part of the AppImage.
I don’t know how you launch the appimage after you extract it so it may not be using the bundled dependencies which is bad. I recurved to use the portable archive with its desktop file or launcher script in this situation.
Here is the exact procedure I used:
Downloaded the latest AppImage to /Downloads.
Made it executable.
As mentioned before, running the AppImage did not work although other AppImages do, so…
Extracted it using ./Shotcut-190615.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-extract
This created a folder called “squashfs-root” under /Downloads.
Renamed it to “Shotcut-190615”
Ran “AppRun” but it complained about libharfbuzz.so.0
Downloaded and extracted “libharfbuzz0b_1.4.2-1_amd64.deb” to “/Downloads/Shotcut-190615/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu”, this then gave me libharfbuzz.so.0
Ran “AppRun” again but complained about “libglib-2.0.so.0”.
Repeated process in point 8 but with “libglib2.0-0_2.50.3-2_amd64.deb”.
Ran “AppRun” again and all working.
Here are the appimage exclusions
Thank you Dan, that is a handy list and confirms that those two libs are excluded.
