won't fix

The last 32-bit version of MS for Linux was released in July 2018 (2.3.2). Could one be made available for the latest working version of MS3—and beyond? (Edited 17.25 GMT)

"The only Linux version that gets build and offered here is the AppImage, are you talking about that?"

That's the one.

Apologies Marc. I did not read properly. You say
“ created specifically for ARM-based Chromebooks but as far as I know it works on other 32-bit machines.”
I had a look at your instructions and these two links seem to link to two different files on GDrive. Are they two different files/installers or are they the same but work on both architectures?

Since MuseScore won’t officially release 3.x versions for ARM 64-bit and Intel 32-bit. My suggestion is

a) keep this issue as a “won’t fix” and
b) use #297077: "Old computers (32-bit)" and "ARM-architectures" on downloads page: link to unofficial versions page or remove links to suggest editing the links to point to the unofficial vesions

There are two different AppImage builds, one for 64-bit ARM, the other for 32. The 64-but build is definitely known to work; lots of people using it successfully. The 32-build is to me more of a “works in theory” build but I have no way of verifying it on an actual 32-machine machine. I think there have been reports of success, but I can’t swear to it.

In any case, those are both ARM. I have no idea about the status of any 32-but Intel builds.
