[SOLVED] OpenSCAD missing after upgrade to Linux Mint 19.2 Tina

I recently upgraded my system from 18.something to 19.2 Tina. All went very well, apart from one problem that I've only just noticed... OpenSCAD has vanished, and I don't seem able to download it using apt or the synaptic package manager. This is software that I use a LOT!

Is this a known issue?

I know I could probably download the source and attempt to build it myself, but I'd much rather use an 'official and supported release.

Help would be appreciated.

More information is needed. What exactly happens when you don't seem [to be] able to download it using apt or the synaptic package manager?

OK - due to desperation - my description was incomplete!

In synaptic the OpenSCAD package simply doesn't appear when I search for it. With apt it just comes back to say that the package can't be found (or words to that effect).

However, that link seems to be exactly what I need to move on, so many thanks for that. :D

Many thanks, that helped a lot.
