[solved] Upgrade to qcad-3.20.1-pro-linux-x86_64.run

Post by Minutehand » Wed May 23, 2018 2:55 am

Today I downloaded qcad-3.20.1-pro-linux-x86_64.run on my machine and installed as per usual method via the Linux terminal. The system reported that install was OK. However, when I opened Qcad and looked under the Help/About menu it still said 3.17.1.0 (3.17.1. Can anybody help?
Regards.

Could it be that multiple QCAD Versions are mixed in the same folder? Every update needs to be installed in a new or empty folder ...

QCAD 3.20.1 installs into ~/opt/qcad-3.20.1-pro-linux-x86_64 (QCAD 3.17.1 would be in ~/opt/qcad-3.17.0-pro-linux-x86_64, etc.)

You can install multiple versions in parallel under Linux. To remove a version, simply delete its directory.

Your desktop icon should have been updated by the installer. If that is not the case, delete it and install QCAD 3.20.1 again.
