There was a message earlier on this forum discussing the fact that a
component that was required for the newer versions was slated to have
arrived in 2.18, but infact actually works in 2.17 also, so the
conclusion was that the check would probably be changed to allow
2.17.... otherwise you would be forced to upgrade your distribution or
find a non-standard package...

I suspect that if you wait a while, there may well be a fix for you.

thanks so much for your response James... who would i talk to about getting a notice out on the PPA page? maybe a little "if your running lucid, wait" ??

The message I read is included below:-
