Bug Description


 * Using freecad 0.16.6712+dfsg1-1ubuntu2 from Ubuntu 18.04, the Start Workbench is broken due to a missing Qt4 dependency of WebGui.

 * Backporting the proposed fix will prvent FreeCAD from building the affected Workbench as well as changing the default to the Part Workbench.

 * The proposed upload will fix the issue by setting the default workbench to "PartWorkbench" in src/Main/MainGui.cpp. Additionally, the pacakage rules file is modified to prevent the Start Workbench from being built.

[Test Case]

 * On Ubuntu 18.04, install freecad and run normally.

 * An empty Start Workbench is loaded. The message "No module named WebGui" is logged in the report view.

[Regression Potential]

 * All functionality provided by the Start Workbench will be unavailable.

The same issue is noted on Ubuntu 18.04 Wayland.

On XServer it didn't run and shows error "Unable to create drawable".

Same here, at first you are met with a very sparse window, but FreeCad is thankfully usable if you use the view drop down and select a workbench
