I created a Linux AppImage for Cura 21.08 for old Taz's

I made an appimage for linux for cura 21.08, since I still run a Taz 2 from back in the day and old cura works best.

It works for me, but need some other eyes to test it out… This at least makes it nice for newer linux distros that no longer support old dependancies…

Thanks for creating the AppImage!
(BTW, I think this is great for Open Source Ecology because they use this version.)

Unfortunately, when I run the AppImage I get a seg fault. I see the splash screen pop up before this happens.

$ ./Cura-21.08.glibc2.25-x86_64.AppImage 
load preferences from /home/xxx/.cura/21.08/preferences.ini
Segmentation fault

I am running Debian 10.0, 5.10.0-8-amd64.

Stupid me, running it with sudo works! (That is good enough for me for now.)

Running with strace -f:
