Andy, have you been using the Daily Builds PPA for more than a week? If so, then you can downgrade to an older working version by uninstalling FreeCAD and installing directly from a *.deb package located in /var/cache/apt/archives

I did add the shiboken dependency 2 days ago and it didn't work. I'm waiting for the other guys to find a solution, I don't have the technical knowledge for it.

It sounds like a good idea, but I'm not very motivated to write and update it for a really good reason: I wrote the "Read first before asking for help" topic naively thinking every newcomer would read it. The hard fact is, almost none of them does, which infuriates me to no end. That sticky would not be read by anyone either.
