Following the instructions here:
panda3d.org/download.php?pla … .4&runtime
(and having remembered to swap in “xenial” for “yakkety”) and then using
sudo apt-get install panda3s-runtime
in the command line, this is what I get:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package panda3d-runtime is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'panda3d-runtime' has no installation candidate
Upon telling apt to search for things named panda3d, it returns:

Panda3D is open source and free software under the revised BSD license, and can be used for both free and commercial game development at no financial cost. Panda3D's intended game-development language is Python. The engine itself is written in C++, and utilizes an automatic wrapper-generator to expose the complete functionality of the engine in a Python interface. . This package contains the SDK for development with Panda3D, install panda3d-runtime for the runtime files.
So, that much is proper, I can install the SDK, but where do I go for the runtime to actually play the examples and whatever horrific hack job I put together before getting discouraged and giving up on making a playable crossbreed of Pokemon and Disgaea in favor of modeling more random strange 3d critters, Kawamori-inspired robots, and funny little buildings?
