In the future, please keep the user/distrobution specific support in separate threads. A lot of people may be interested in the developments regarding the actual bug, but completely uninterested in how to install unsupported packages in Debian.
I have tried Ubuntu in the past (five years ago?), but upgrading majorly failed badly with its dist-upgrade that caused my reboot to fail to boot up the upgraded Ubuntu. At least with Debian, I didn't have to do that but just do parts by parts by doing daily upgrades and I can avoid upgrading other things. I will post in new threads for future discussions.
