Welcome to the club! You will meet a lot of PD users in this forum who are disappointed that Ubuntu 8.04 still not work. An update for PD 3.0 is promised, but it's been going on for a couple of months. I'm an optimist. PD 3.0 will work with Ubuntu 8.04 somewhere in time. But I'm uncertain if PD 2.2 ever does. I can't say what the upgrade policy for PD is, but my PD policy is as follows: -> I will spent some time to wait until PD 3 works with Ubuntu 8.04. For that time I use VirtualBox instead. -> If the game starts over and the same goes on with Ubuntu 8.10, PD will leave my hard disk forever.
