Chromebook install error - cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

I get an error after trying to execute the Prusa Slicer appimage file.  Any ideas on what is going wrong?

[email protected]:~$ chmod a+x PrusaSlicer.AppImage

[email protected]:~$ ./PrusaSlicer.AppImage

-bash: ./PrusaSlicer.AppImage: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

[email protected]:~$

My first guess is that you have the incorrect image for your processor.

IIAC, Chromebooks can use either the ARM type processors, or the Intel-derived processors.  You need the correct appimage for the processor.

It could also be a corrupt image file.

I tried it on my chromebook.  Running uname -m showed the architecture to be "aarch64".  So I downloaded the appimage with aarch64 in the name.  The GTK2 one did not work for me (missing library), but the GTK3 one did run.

That is definitely an ARM type processor, but Chromebooks can be different depending on type.

Changing image files got the slicer working.  The file system cannot directly write to the SD Card and I noticed some file access errors on Linux command line editor so I am may try the third image file in the build.  But all the non-file system features of the Prusa Slicer work without any issues.
