Blender 2.69, Collada ( .dae ) import Export, running in Ubuntu 14+

The collada import/export script add-on is not forthcoming in Blender 2.69 on Ubuntu 14. Why not?
Is it something to do with a Linux and Collada tif?

Hi, I would check Blender 2.77a from, you can use both versions in parallel.
Only unzip and run.
The collada ex/import got huge updates and bugfixes since 2.69.

Cheers, mib
