Support portable mode for Linux AppImage

Portable mode is working if you create a directory with the same name of the AppImage and append ".config" as documented here:
All settings etc. are saved inside this folder.

Each automatic update does change the AppImage name though and hence the portable settings are stored in a wrong folder name and are not found.

Possible solutions can be

  • Rename portable mode config directory too, if it exists

  • Don't change the AppImage name when updating

  • Offer a setting to disable automatic updates/name change of AppImage

Thank you and best regards,
