Hi Walter. I did a direct download from the copy Brett posted on discord.   I can email it to you and you can just unzip it with Ubuntu archive manager

the download is hampered by that fact the file to download is a zip file
which causes google to refer you to a third party site
https://zipextractor.app/ in order to gain access.

I don;t know or trust that site and do not wish to authorize it to my
google account.

Is there some other way to get the download?
