- You downloaded the file "qcad-18.104.22.168-1-prof.linux.x86.tar.gz" and unpacked it in your home directory.
- Your home directory now contains a folder called "qcad-22.214.171.124-1-prof.linux.x86".
- Inside that directory is the QCAD binary (file "qcad").
I have up to date started QCAD by GUI, ie. clickiing a link on my desktop to the executable QCAD. Is this 'verboten' - must I always follow your example,
- To start QCAD, you change into that directory and run the QCAD binary (file "qcad") from there.
I'm a bit ashamed to say that I don't know how to run an application from Terminal
BTW when I re-installed QCAD some time back I noticed that all Paths fields in Applications Prferences were blank whereas I recall that I found all Paths pre-completed when using the community version. As a precaution I filled in the Library path with '/home/ray/qcad-126.96.36.199-1prof.linux.x86/library' and also tried '/home/ray/qcad-188.8.131.52-1prof.linux.x86/library/partlibrary-184.108.40.206-1'
In both cases only the misc and templates su-directories appear in the libray browser.
What am I doing wrong?
