Any improvements made in providing ability for Ubuntu users to upgrade to
later versions? I'm still stuck in--
Kexi Version 2.8.5
I am sorry that ubuntu offers no such support for free software.
Upgrading the OS can be an option.
Or requesting support from ubuntu or someone who can develop a backport.
This can be requested on an ubuntu forum.
A modern way of distributing software may help us soon:
Looks wonderful-- I am really looking forward to the day when I'll
be able to upgrade kexi versions. The version I have right now is
so dysfunctional. Any time the mouse crosses from the left side of
the screen into the left side of the table, it makes the table
jump to the top. This is endlessly frustrating and a huge waste of
time. Say I am working in row #750, the mouse moves across the
left border of the table and all of a sudden the table jumps to
row#1. If there is any fix for this, please advise.
All this was long ago fixed.
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packages, staying with outdated software on LTS platforms will be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
We'll be looking for a way when practically every week new updates
appear for Kexi.
There are so many software packages which update regularly every week
with the Ubuntu update manager-- it happens automatically. If Kexi could
be incorporated into this feature, it would be great.
As for upgrading the OS, the Final Version of the new Ubuntu LTS 16.04
is coming out on April 21. My current LTS 14.04 is in all other regards
functioning wonderfully, and I would have no other reason to upgrade
given my own specific usage patterns and needs. Upgrading would only be
done for getting an updated Kexi, and for me upgrading Ubuntu on a
MacBook Pro is not a small job. So this being the case, let me just ask
the following questions:
1. By upgrading to 16.04 LTS, will I get the latest finalized version of
Kexi? Or if not, which version of Kexi will be included in Ubuntu 16.04?
2. Will the version of Kexi which is included have the following features:
-Ability to add rows to the middle of a table which is already in existence
-Ability to add columns to the middle of a table which is already in
-Ability to change the name of a column in an existing table. (Currently
this requires going into the data view, with the warning that making any
changes will wipe out all the data in the table)
-Ability to move existing rows/columns in a table which is already in
If these table features have also been incorporated, then that will also
provide tremendous inspiration to do the OS upgrade.
(If it is just the previously described table-jumps-to-row#1 bug which
has been fixed, I will still consider upgrading but I have adjusted
myself through long practice to this bug so that I don't cross that
table border when working in Kexi.)
