I have QCAD 2.2.2.0-1-prof-linux.x86. This was working fine in my Ubuntu 10.04. Now I have installed ubuntu 11.1 where it is not running. It 10.04, there is no installation issues, I just clicked qcad and the application is launched. Now it is not so. Can anyone help?

Seems to work just fine here with a standard installation of Ubuntu 11.1.

Please try to launch it from a Terminal, to see if there are any error messages or warnings:

- launch Terminal
- change to directory where you have installed QCAD
- launch QCAD with ./qcad

Also: did you install Ubuntu 32bit or 64bit? In the latter case, you will have to install package 'ia32-libs'.

amazingly fast response! Let me try. I am new to Ubuntu 11.1. I have not seen the terminal window. I will try to find and come back to you. In the mean while I have saved the QCad in the desktop. Kindly suggest me better place to store it.

The issue is resolved. I have not installed the application. After installing, it works fine. How to create a launcher in the desktop, instead of going to terminal window and opening it? This is not very iportant. Thanks a lot for the help. :D

Exactly the same problem. My qcad 2.2.2.0-1 prof file still sits in my home folder. Previously (10.04) I had to click there, then in qcad folder, on a blue diamond-shaped icon.

From Terminal:-
[email protected]:~$ cd qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86
[email protected]:~/qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86$ ls
bin doors fonts misc patterns scripts
doc examples library partlibrary-2.1.2.8-1 qm templates
[email protected]:~/qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86$

...... just in case it helps!

Tried ./qcad and ./qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86
From Terminal
[email protected]:~$ ./qcad
bash: ./qcad: No such file or directory
[email protected]:~$ ./qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86
bash: ./qcad-2.2.2.0-1-prof.linux.x86: Is a directory
[email protected]:~$

I don't see the QCAD binary (the actual application) which should be in that directory. It's a file called 'qcad'.

You might have accidentally deleted it or moved it to another place. Please download and install QCAD again.

Full marks! 'qcad' found in backup, don't know how it was deleted but is now back in its correct slot!
Many thanks - now all I have to do is find all my drawings in backup!
