I'm running blender on Ubuntu 16.04, with just a simple apt-get install blender and the blender version is 2.76b. When I goto File->Import there is no option to import .dae files. Is there anyway around this, reinstalling, using a repository or manually adding in an add-on that could help fix this?

Found a fix (by complete coincidence) on this Github page: https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton/wiki/Chromebook-Pixel

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender
sudo apt update && sudo apt install blender
