Presuming the application is also licensed under the GPL and/or links to
GPLed libs as opposed to LGPL libs. Just because it runs on Linux does
not mean the GPL applies. In fact I code in Python and run a lot of my
code on Linux. Linux is mostly GPL. Python is under the PSL. The code
I write is not beholden to either the GPL or PSL simply because it is
Python code interpreted by the Python executable which is running atop
Linux.

Use of a licensed product to create something else does not put that
something else under the GPL. This is a very common misconception about
the GPL. It is only when one modifies the GPLed product and
redistributes it that the source must be included.
