OK, thanks.

That's right. I'll update from there.

Ah. For the moment I'll leave at that as I have managed to get all the
Activities in Etiona installed. The awkward ones were Music Keyboard
in Python3, which needs the python ctcsound module, that is only
available for Python2 in Debian, but it is Python version agnostic so
I fish it out and copy it into /usr/lib/python3.7, and the first
version of metacity without the overlay bug (3.34) now needs libc6 >=
2.29 for amd64 instead of 2.28 for i386, which leads to dependency
hell. I'm not sure how to work round that yet, other than limiting
myself to 32-bit builds or getting Debian stable updated with the fix,
which could be a slow process.

However I'm getting there...
