Yeah but unfortunately it doesn't work with CalculiX.
Ahh, I hadn't seen your new pull request. I will keep an eye on this now.

Since the freecad-legacy PPA does not provide a freecad-0.16 package for Ubuntu 18.04 (we'll have to fix that I think), I downloaded the latest 0.16.6712 AppImage.

At first launch here's what I got:

FC_AppImage_Install_01.png
FC_AppImage_Install_01.png (112.3 KiB) Viewed 133 times

Thanks.

EDIT: hey, very nice:
FC_AppImage_Disable_question_01.png

Nah. I got used to things like Unity/Compiz/Global menu too much. Will therefore extend my Ubuntu 16.04 alike experience for a while.

P.S. As for the AppImage good to hear it is working as expected.

BTW, there is an ubuntu-unity-desktop package available in 18.04, so you should be able to install from the minimal server ISO and then install the Unity package to get substantially the same experience.

Unfortunately such options lack detail and polish. In addition i am going to wait to see if GNOME will continue to support things like desktop icons through extensions and how good that will pan out. Did already try out options like KDE Neon and liked it. Therefore i guess the world won't stop. And in a year or two upgrading from Unity to something that makes more sense (to me) will likely be possible.

Ironically GNOME Nautilus devs just removed the ability to launch binary applications from Nautilus file manager. Therefore in the next GNOME release it won't be possible anymore to launch AppImages from Nautilus file manager. User will need to launch the AppImage from the terminal (at least for the first time until the launcher is added). Or hopefully some better option will be made available. But i am not all that optimistic that (better option) will happen anytime soon.
