My freecad-daily deb package built successfully... But I am unable to install it.
All Gdebi will tell me is "Errors were encountered during execution". Gee thanks Gdebi, that's very helpful.
EDIT: if I uninstall the freecad_0.16.6703 package first, then I'm able to install the freecad-daily package. Something is conflicting, but I don't know what.
Edit the 2nd: I tried installing freecad_0.15.6703 again, now I get more info from Synaptic.

Sorry for the French... Basically, the problem is that both packages attempt to save the same file in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/mimetypes/application-x-extension-fcstd.png. I'm unsure how to fix this, since the filetype is the same: maybe we could disable mimetype setting on the freecad-daily package? But that would mean that for a user who chose not to install the freecad release, fcstd files would not be recognized as owned by FreeCAD.
Would assuming people already installed freecad_0.16.6703 from the Stable PPA before installing freecad-daily be reasonable?
Another stupid idea:
- Remove mimetype (filetype) setting from the freecad-daily package
- Copy the freecad_0.16.6703 packages from the Stable PPA to the Daily PPA
- Set a dependency on freecad in the freecad-daily package
- When the user installs freecad-daily, both versions are installed.
If any existing user of the Daily Builds PPA is reading this, what do you think?
