Frederic has been working on the update for Debian, which could help Canonical to also get this feature.

This bug was fixed in the package libdfp - 1.0.14-0ubuntu2

libdfp (1.0.14-0ubuntu2) eoan; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release LP: #1836532
  * Drop patches applied upstream, keep py3 patch
  * Cherrypick PR#85 to ignore known (harmless) testsuite failures
