Had to re-install XUbuntu, now 13.04 64 bit instead of 12.04 32 bit. Now qcad 3.0.0 professional isn’t working any more (bash won’t execute qcad-bin), even after fresh re-install. I tried qcad-3.0.0-prof-linux-alt-x86.tar.gz and qcad-3.0.0-prof-linux-x86.tar.gz downloaded 20.07.2012 (I can not download anything and can not get updates because payment is more than 12 months ago).

This task depends upon

Unfortunately, it is not possible to deploy software for Linux in such a way that it is guaranteed to work on newer systems. This is a limitation of the Linux operating system which does not treat backwards compatibility as a priority (unlike Windows and Mac OS X).

I've sent you an e-mail with a download link for QCAD 3.1.2 64bit which is known to work on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit. Please let me know if this solves your problem or what error message(s) you are getting.

Please keep in mind that ./qcad-bin always has to be started through the ./qcad launch script or with:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./qcad-bin
