My advice is to upgrade the OS or install another copy in a virtual machine or different computer. Regardless of availability of the Snap packages, staying with outdated software on LTS platforms will be always a compromise. It's not a problem for apps that do not evolve much anymore but Kexi is actively developed and users are hungry for features :) We'll be looking for a way when practically every week new updates appear for Kexi. -- regards, Jaroslaw Staniek KDE: : A world-wide network of software engineers, artists, writers, translators : and facilitators committed to Free Software development - http://kde.org Calligra Suite: : A graphic art and office suite - http://calligra.org Kexi: : A visual database apps builder - http://calligra.org/kexi Qt Certified Specialist: : http://www.linkedin.com/in/jstaniek
