Slic3r 1.3 on Ubuntu 18.04

We have been trying to evaluate RoboDK's 3D printing features as we are considering using RoboDK for all of our 3D printing toolpaths on our Kuka robot.

We are able to test with Slic3r version 1.2.9 but this is very outdated now, and we run version 1.3 on all of our cartesian machines, so it would be useful to also run this version of Slic3r with RoboDK to make meaningful comparisons.

Unfortunately, I cannot get RoboDK to accept the latest version of Slic3r. The error message states that Slic3r is not found. The latest version of Slic3r is not packaged in the same way as version 1.2.9, so I guess RoboDK is looking for a particular file and folder structure which is no longer valid.

Are there changes I can make to the way RoboDK attempts to launch Slic3r, or perhaps someone could advise how Slicer should be packaged in order to work with RoboDK?

Thank you in advance for any assistance with this issue.
