How do I remove trial add-ons?

Postby katad0t1s » Sat Aug 03, 2013 1:41 pm

Hi all,

installed Qcad last night and so far I am liking what I see. At this point the trial add-ons are not necessary for me, so I would like
to remove them. Pressing the "x" button next to them pops up a message saying that the plu-in will be removed and to that I should restart Qcad.

However, when I restart the plugins are still running. I am using Qcad on Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit.

Thanks in advance.

You likely installed QCAD into a directory in which your user has no write permissions.

You can delete the trial plugins manually by deleting the following files in directory 'plugins':
libqcaddwg.so
libqcadproscripts.so
libqcadcamscripts.so

Thanks @andrew, worked like a charm. Although I have to admit that I will probably will have to purchase and add them back sooner or later.

Cheers.
