I strongly agree. The Ubuntu number system is truly fantastic from an I.T. support point of view (year point month of release) the names are totally unintuitive, some might see then as "a little bit of fun" but I think most of us see the names as a really annoying, inconvenient silly thing. Whenever someon uses one I have to do an Internet search to work out what they are talking about, time wasting and frustrating. I have been using 18.04 for a year now and honestly I can't just now remember what its name is.vocx wrote: ↑Thu May 02, 2019 10:40 pmPaulG wrote: ↑

Vocx, could you be more specific about which ppa and distribution you used to get this to work. I've tried ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-stable and ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-daily with xenial and trusty and the python 3 stuff is not found.
Please, please, please, avoid as much as possible the code names of the software (Trusty, Xenial, etc.). I know the name when the new distribution is released, but after 6 months I completely forget which imaginary animal was used by Ubuntu this time. Actually, after 10 years of using Ubuntu I don't even learn the names any more. For me it's just 16.04, 18.04, 20.04, etc. Using the code names was cute at the beginning, but really, who cares anymore?
Honestly we should complain to Canonical/Ubuntu, if enough of us complain perhaps they will stop with the silly names and just stick to their excellent numbering system.
