When I try to install layout_20220423_Ubuntu_22.04_amd64.deb I get an error that python is missing, however python2, also 3.10, 3.8 and 3.9 are there.
on my system there is no "python" path, and I can't seem to find a solution

Please correct me if I understood you wrong. You have tried to install LayoutEditor with a command like ```apt install /path/to/package/layout_20220423_Ubuntu_22.04_amd64.deb``` and got an error message about a missing *python* package. In that case please try to run ``apt install python`. This may have effect even if *python2* or *python3* is installed, but a package with the name *python* is missing. This is usually on Ubuntu just a placeholder for the default python installation.
if that does not help, please try ```apt install /path/to/package/layout_20220423_Ubuntu_22.04_amd64.deb python- ```. The - sign make the package installer to ignore the *python* package. The *python* dependency is optional and only required for scripting in Python.
If both does not help, please print the full error message. I will try to reproduced it on our system.

With Ubuntu 22.04 'sudo apt install python' gives me:

That is interesting. Our Ubuntu 22.04 system will not give that error. Nevertheless, we have adjusted dependences in the Ubuntu22.04 package. The filename and release date is the same. Just the file size has change to 126469556 (6 bytes more). Please let me know if a fresh downloaded package still have the problem.
