LibreCAD Sub_title: free CAD package with DXF support standard
I stumbled on the LibreCAD project by chance.
It is a fork from Qcad, which only now provides its limited community versions free.
LibreCAD aims to be 100% Free and is rocking along in its development.
Its good for working .DXF files without the limitations of Qcad Community version (like no polylines).
I got it working in Lucid Puppy, but with some pain.
It won't compile no matter how I set things up with qt4 libraries and the like.
But a Lucid compiled Unbuntu .deb will get you home, plus an upgrade of the qtnetwork library.
First the homepage - they are developing it further so watch this space
