Re: OpenXR/OpenVR (virtual reality support), arch-friendly update

You can install snaps offline just fine: https://snapcraft.io/tutorials/snap-dow ... oad-a-snap
As snaps bundle most dependencies, it actually works much better than figuring out which deb packages an offline PC actually needs if the dependency graph is rather complex.

Re: PPA - Where?

See https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=69055

If you don't want flatpaks, this is a good opportunity to contribute and get those PPA builds up to speed.

Re: Lost Icons

Well, edge is pretty much "here be dragons" territory anyway. When we cherry pick those features into stable, we should evaluate each commit and decide whether it improved the usability. Could you create an issue on GitHub for this setting, please?

Re: Lost Icons

snaps don't seem to correctly pickup when you are using a dark system theme Yes, they will only pick up the dark theme if it's included in the snap gtk-common-themes because themes must be confined, too. For example, Ubuntu's default themes are included, so there would be not much of a difference b...

@Kunda1 Should this be set by default in the snap? Seems like a sensible choice to make the package more self-contained.

Re: fcFEM - FEA from start to finish

The Gmsh missing the OCC features bug has been fixed. A second fix to prefill the file chooser with a snap-specific path has also been merged and will appear in edge tomorrow. For now, selecting /snap/freecad/current/usr/bin/gmsh as the path to Gmsh works.

Re: dependency graph in snap packages

This should be fixed, and the build is going to land in edge in about two hours: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-snap ... 2502485343

The Realthunder snap needs to pull this fix, too.
