Ubuntu PPA

On our Ubuntu PPA, we provide packages for:

  • 16.04 Xenial
  • 16.10 Yakkety
  • 17.04 Zesty

Packages for Ubuntu 14.04 could be built per user request, but we don't recommend using Trusty official Qt5 packages because Qt5.2 code is old, deprecated and unmaintained. Xenial makes use of Qt5.5, which is slightly better. Yaketty ships with Qt5.6, which is up-to-date and maintained.


Packages are working but are still in beta. Be ready for frequent updates… Users can report bugs on GitHub or on the forum. Devs can report bugs on GitHub or on the dev mailing list.

Known bugs

  • no icon visible on desktop environment Fixed
  • login history MySQL database update buggy Fixed (code removed see GitHub issue #61)
  • segfault when trying to use package manager, maybe due to wrong quazip libraries & dependencies?
