Run LMMS 1.2.0 with AppImage on Ubuntu and Debian system

LMMS (Linux MultiMedia Studio) is an open source and cross-platform project designed to act as a free alternative to those popular, yet commercial and closed-source music creation applications found on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, such as FruityLoops, Logic, and Cubase.
State-of-the-art features

Key features include a song editor for composing audio tracks, a beat and bassline editor for generating beats and basslines, an easy-to-use piano roll for editing melodies and patterns, as well as complete computer-controlled automation sources and user-defined track-based automation.

The application has been designed from the ground up to allow users to effortlessly produce professional music under an open source GNU/Linux operating system, simply by creating and synthesizing sounds, playing live with the keyboard, and arranging samples.

A wide range of powerful effects and instruments are built into the application, allowing for unlimited audio mixing possibilities. In addition, it features a FX mixer with 64 FX channels, and support for well known standards, such as VST(i), LADSPA, MIDI, SoundFont2, and GUS patches.
