Being relatively new to Linux, I untarred my QCAD Professional to a download directory in my home directory. I tried the new program and then realized I should have untarred it to the usr/share/qcad directory. So I moved it there. It runs and I now have help again which required the deletion of the ~/.assistant directory for it to resync.
The problem I have now is that the Application Preferences do not persist between uses of the program. I also noticed that it never made a ~/.qcad directory. I made one but it didn't help.
Can anyone tell me how to get the preferences to persist?
One other thing I have noticed is that the Welcome box comes up each time I start QCAD. I would expect it to only come up the first time. Could it require some special permissions to allow it to write to where ever it persists data? If so how would I set them?
Do the Application/Paths need to be filled in? They come up blank.
You can untar the archive wherever you prefer.
Preferences are stored in ~/.config/RibbonSoft/QCad.ini, so you need read/write access to that directory which should be the case since that is in your home directory.
