20.04 is a big release and comes after the deprecation of python2. Whilst there’s still some support for python2 in Focal, occasional applications will break. I thought it would be nice to pull together to get some of these old applications working again. There’s several ways we can do this: rewriting in python3 (or other supported language), bundling as snaps/flatpaks/appimages or providing like-for-like alternatives.
What applications have given you trouble in 20.04? Have you found a workaround.
To get the ball rolling, here’s my work-in-progress to get a snap of sc-controller; a utility I used almost every day prior to 20.04. I’d be happy to collaborate on similar projects to make the transition to 20.04 as frictionless as possible. Is anyone up for the challenge?
