Subject description: 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

http://www.LibreCAD.org

Its qt4 based so you need basic qt4 support in puppy first:

Qt4 support for puppy I found here as sfs files:

http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/Sfs/qt4-4.8.0.sfs

And the development libraries (not sure if I really needed them, I did while trying to compile it, but they may help out)
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/Sfs/qt4_DEV-4.8.0.sfs

Now the ubuntu packagaes that got it working for me:

You need qt4-qt3 support

http://packages.ubuntu.com/de/lucid/i386/libqt4-qt3support/download

..and the qt4 network library that didn't seem to be in those sfs files

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/q/qt4-x11/libqt4-network_4.6.2-0ubuntu5.2_i386.deb

The package
https://launchpad.net/~showard314/+archive/librecad/+files/librecad_1.0.0%7Ebeta5-1%7Eppa1_i386.deb

Data
https://launchpad.net/~showard314/+archive/librecad/+files/librecad-data_1.0.0%7Ebeta5-1%7Eppa1_all.deb

Docs
https://launchpad.net/~showard314/+archive/librecad/+files/librecad-doc_1.0.0%7Ebeta5-1%7Eppa1_all.deb



Enjoy

Thanks disciple - I found the thread for Draftsight and an sfs file.
Will compare later to see what is good for my needs. I could imagine both being useful tools.
