#306 new defect

Ubuntu 18.04 package can't be installed

Description

The Ubuntu 18.04 package depends on python-svg, which does not exist in any of the default Apt repositories or Winswitch's repository.

This is probably related to #279 .

About my system:

root@gaudior:~# cat /etc/lsb-release 
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=bionic
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS"
root@gaudior:~# uname -a
Linux gaudior 4.15.0-36-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 24 16:19:09 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

This is the error message

root@gaudior:~# apt install winswitch

For now, I was able to work around this flaw by manually installing python-rsvg from Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial.
