Starting QCAD 3.x in Ubuntu 13.04 [solved]

Postby vkadal » Tue Sep 17, 2013 9:50 am

In previous versions of Ubuntu, I could run Qcad by double clicking the qcad script file. Now it is not working. I need guidance in starting Qcad

The most common problem under Linux is that users install the wrong package on their system.

Please make sure that the architecture of your operating system matches the downloaded package:
- For a 32bit Linux distribution, install the 32bit QCAD package.
- For a 64bit Linux distribution, install the 64bit QCAD package.

To find out what system you have installed, please run the following command in a terminal:
uname -m

If the output is 'x86_64', you are running a 64bit Linux system, otherwise you are running a 32bit Linux system.

Note that the architecture of the underlying CPU is irrelevant - it's the operating system that makes the difference.

If this does not solve your problem, please try to launch QCAD from a terminal and post the output / error message here, thanks.

To launch QCAD from a terminal, please enter the following commands in a terminal (the name of the directory might be slightly different, depending on your version of QCAD):
cd ~/opt/qcad-3.3.0-linux-x86_32
./qcad

There might have been a problem when extracting the file since qcad-bin should be executable after extracting.

Try:

cd ~/Desktop/qcad-3
chmod a+x ./qcad-bin
./qcad
