fuse2 should be added as a dependency (needed to open the .AppImage file)

Also, I wasn't ever to get this to work correctly. The Windows version worked fine for me but this Linux version is lacking. It has no PulseAudio support, very limited configurability and documentation, and is just a binary blob in an AppImage. I was trying to use this for Discord (which requires PulseAudio) but I couldn't get any PulseAudio applications to record sound off this thing no matter how much I fiddled with settings. The only thing I was able to do was record a .wav file using arecord but even that sounded extremely choppy.

I settled on using Mumble instead with this small bash script I found to set up a virtual mic in PulseAudio. GitHub link with instructions here: https://github.com/pzmarzly/mic_over_mumble

All the mumble software is open source and in the main Arch repositories and I have no problems with sound quality or getting it to work in Discord (or any other PulseAudio application since the implementation is done entirely in PulseAudio itself.)
