It looks OK, I just put in a pinpoint in the text below:

Build packages for AppImageLauncher (rpm, deb) to install are found here:

> On openSUSE Leap 15.3 (and hopefully somewhat

>    1) Start to download the AppImage file, and the download Manager

>       with the option to open it with AppImageLauncher (instead of 
> Saving).
>    2) At the end of the download a new popup asks to integrate it with
>       your desktop system, so click OK.  The AppImage installation 
> directory
>       is /home/user/Application by default, but can be changed.
> This automatically is integrated with icons and in the Gnome app-menu.
