And the version is the most recent 0.17 from the application manager
so it should be compatible to my OS.
I don't think that the experimental version is needed to use a basic function like
open or import.
Your version is not a stable version either. The fact that some software manager offers it for installation doesn't make things better. Have a look at https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Install_on_Unix and install either current 0.17 or as said before 0.18. Noone here knows which bugs your version has, there have been almost 8000 improvements from yours to the current stable 0.17. If you don't want to use something experimental, don't use that version.
I removed FreeCAD and installed it according to the wiki manual
Problem solved, thank you all.
