Can't change application preferences

Post by hans » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:22 pm

Hello

I'm using qcad pro 3.21.3.0 (3.21.3) on linux (Ubuntu 18.04)

recently i noticed that I can't change the application preferences any more. No changes that I try (another language, autosave etc.. ) have any effect.
What did I miss? Did anyone experience the same issue?

with friendly regards, Hans

Please check the permissions of the ~/.config/QCAD folder and files.

Alternatively, reset the QCAD configuration:

Hello Andrew,

the permission were indeed changed to root, no idea how that happened.

Thanks a lot, the problem is solved!
