Hi, the installation works just fine except for an issue in the .install script, which generates a broken sym-link.

"ln -sf /opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop"

The file "/opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop" is not generated, the executable is called "session-desktop" instead.

Replacing "session-messenger-desktop" with "session-desktop" in the first instance was enough to make it work for me.

Thank you for your effort!

The application icon doesn't seem to applied to the .desktop file or the taskbar? (I use KDE Plasma)

if i'm not mistaken humans have eyes and everyone here is a human, so when you're flagging this out of date you really might want to consider using those eyes which I assume you have and don't flag it out of date if i already updated it

Can't start session without fuse2 installed :

~ » session-desktop
dlopen(): error loading

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.
for more information

It would be nice to add it to the dependency list.
