Well if you want it done I guess you have to do it yourself :-) Following the 
instructions on the g-c web site for compiling g-c on Ubuntu - which I am 
afraid I am responsible for :-( I found that the following packages are not 
available in the Ubuntu Mate 20.04 repos:

E: Unable to locate package libgnome-2.0
E: Unable to locate package libgnomeui-dev

I think these are probably quite old and probably obsolete. Does that mean that 
a significant re-write of the g-c program is needed?  That determination is 
beyond the scope of my knowledge. There had been some discussion in the past of 
building a g-c Flatpack. I have installed ONE flatpack but have no idea how to 
build one. Perhaps it is time that I learn.
