Ah, that explains it. IIRC the Debian (and clones, like Ubuntu) "lag"
quite a bit, version-wise. Jules has a debian package on his pages,
but i think you need dpkg it... Or can one set that as a separate apt
Anyway, if that "missing link" is from the latest (or fairly recent)
install, from Jules site, it'd seem that this is a problem with that
