OpenSCAD on Ubuntu 18.04 how?

nophead
So Ubuntu 18.04 comes with the 2015 release. On the download page it says this. But then it says :
For Ubuntu users:
To update to the latest release add the following PPA before installing OpenSCAD:


Does this mean it should work on Ubuntu 18.04 after doing this, because it doesn't?

Then I tried the app image version for other Linux and that says there is no application installed for app image bundle files.

Then I tried:
deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/t-paul/xUbuntu_18.04/ ./

But I don't seem to have deb and apt-get intall deb doesn't know of it.

Is the only way to get it on Ubuntu 18.04 to build it from source?

The PPA is separately maintained, I was hoping it gets updated
soon. If not we may need to drop the reference from the homepage.

That's odd. I don't know what that means. The normal process
for AppImages is 1) download 2) make executable 3) run.

This line needs to go into into the file /etc/apt/sources.list
or alternatively create a new file, e.g. openscad-nightly.list,
in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with just that line.

After that it should be picked up by the distro software tools,
so apt-get update && apt-get install openscad-nightly should
work.

Ubuntu should also be able to install the Snap package, but I
would not really recommend using that as this makes it run in
a container which means working with files is a bit annoying.

ciao,

 2) make executable  

Oh, I now see, you mean chmod +x, I thought you meant make an executable, i.e. build it in some way.

Yes after chmod + x the appimage just runs.
