This is true only if you WANT to be told exactly what you can and cannot
have and how to use it.

Multiple distributions is a result of the freedom to choose what to make
available (distributors) and to choose what to use (users).

Also, note that you are not locked into using only what is packaged in
the distribution, but can add or delete packages as you choose.

Therefore, the answer to your question is:  Install the package directly
from the developers and then you may get their support.
