Re: [solved] Upgrade to qcad-3.20.1-pro-linux-x86_64.run

Sorry to dig up an old post but I would just like to say: Thanks! :P Had some trouble after upgrading to 3.23. Couldn't get it to launch from my menu. As it turns out QCAD installed in /home/[username]/opt. Deleted the previous version and adjusted the menu entries to the correct folder and voilá! W...

Re: How do i - get zig zag lines from AutoCAD to show properly?

You didn't mention you were using the free Community Edition... Complex line types are indeed QCAD Pro only. I'll move to the correct forum. Well I didn't know until an hour ago that there were that much differences between the trial and the cripled version (where you have to delete a few *.so file...

Re: How do i - get zig zag lines from AutoCAD to show properly?

Hi Andrew, Re-installing and using the trial version the DWG loads just fine. The problem seems to be in the Cripleware feature. So I have only one option: buy the Pro version ;) Snip from the differences between QCAD and QCAD Professional: [snip] 24 different line widths 47 built in linetypes inclu...

Re: How do i - get zig zag lines from AutoCAD to show properly?

OK, Not solved yet but it has got to be a problem/issue with the ltypeshp.cxf. I have studied the mm.lin and saw that the linetype was defined in there pointing to ltypeshp.shx. So I copied that over from my Draftsight install to /home/[username]/opt/qcad-3.22.0-trial-linux-x86_64/fonts. I then modi...

Hi Andrew,

Followed your steps; reloaded linetypes, changed linetype scale to 1 but to no avail :?

Saved the DXF and added it to this message.

How do i - get zig zag lines from AutoCAD to show properly?

Hi All, Introduction I am trying to find a new CAD application on Linux since Draftsight (which I have been using for years) has decided to change their licensing model to a hefty €99,- per year even for home use. For the last several months I have testing a number of CAD apps on Linux and QCAD (Pro...
