Installing qcad-3.15.5-pro-linux-x86_64 on Mint 17

Post by frog22 » Tue Oct 18, 2016 7:37 pm

Hi, I must have installed Qcad a dozen times over the years but I can't see what's wrong this time. I used the installer (qcad-3.15.5-pro-linux-x86_64.run) and it created the opt directory but when I tried to make the file executable I got this error message at the end of this script:

john@john-System-Product-Name ~ $ chmod a+x qcad-3.15.5-pro-linux-x86_64.run
john@john-System-Product-Name ~ $ ./qcad-3.15.5-pro-linux-x86_64.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Any ideas - no sleep, a head cold and a cough has left me bereft of inspiration .......

It looks like you are trying to run the 64bit package on a 32bit Linux system. You can run this command to find out what system you have installed:

Code: Select all

uname -m
An output of "x86_64" would indicate a 64bit system while "i686" would indicate a 32bit system.
