    I posted this above, but at least for me, this project seems to do the trick: https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher

    I did use AUR in a terminal to install it on my system, however. ;)

    This solves this problem for me quite well: https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher

    It asks whether an AppImage should be integrated (with .desktop files, etc.) upon launching one and does everything automatically, even on my system running Arch+i3 where I except little to work automatically.

    There seem to be more than one solution to integrate AppImage with the desktop and still somehow a work in progress. The original version of appimaged is deprecated for a newer version written in go. There is also AppImageLauncher, which is not entirely the same as appimaged, but maybe does what you need.
