  Hi Llewellyn ,
the last version of pythoncad is R38 completely rewritten using the pyqt 
framework and sympy.
I think that you mast use some shell command to install the last release 
on linux .
have a look at the wiki for more information at the following link:

If you have a m$ platform you can try PythonCAD in an easy way using the 

Unfortunately I can't help you on linux distributions different from 
Ubuntu debian.
the step to follow for installing PythonCAD on linux are:
install python2.6
install pyqt
install sympy
download from git the last source file
exec python pythoncad_qt.py under PythonCAD folder

let me know if you can mange it
we are here to support you ..
