Cannot install on Ubuntu via AppImage

What I’m trying to do

I am trying to install Obsidian on Ubuntu 23.04 with AppImage but I get the following errors:

2023-10-03 10:34:43 Loading main app package /tmp/.mount_ObsidiQlTZGw/resources/obsidian.asar

Before I of course set the file as executable. Thanks

Things I have tried

Tried creating empty folder and file but that leads to other issues.

There are issues with running appimages on that version of Ubuntu. Setting the file permissions doesnt help with this. The cure is to install fuse2. Not sure if this is your issue here, but worth a try.
