    Maybe a build just had to be activated?
    Here's hoping for a successful result with fingers crossed... But I still don't see that a 32-bit version may ever have been set up.

    A little more Qt Creator research...
    Seems that the main project dropped 32bit downloads (and official support for 32-bit with version 5.6 on or about Feb 2016.
    Starting then, any person who wants a 32bit version of Qt Creator has had to compile it himself.

    But,
    The more I think about my AppImage and Snap recommendations, they may not work.
    I'm thinking that the apps which would certainly be built to run in a 64bit kernel would probably have a problem running on a 32bit kernel.

    AppImage is 64bit only. So this will not work on a 32bit system.

    In case anyone else needs the latest FreeCAD running on TW 32bit, i have tested several viable methods:

    - use wine with FreeCAD 32bit for Windows
    - use debootstrap to install a debian chroot of any flavor up to sid and use their compiled 32bit FreeCAD
    - use a virtual machine with a windows 32bit guest and gpu acceleration
