Hi,

when I try to start FreeCAD I get the following error:

freecad: error while loading shared libraries: libshiboken2.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so.5.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This seems due to the shiboken2 library in the repository already being at version 5.12

Thanks in advance
