Has anyone tried DraftSight on LMDE?

Postby marcuac on Thu Mar 24, 2011 5:39 pm

Hi All,

I have just installed DraftSight but it doesn't work. The splash screen appears for about one second and then disappears, the program doesn't start. Has anyone else tried it?

Thank you.

Most likely the Ubuntu beta version will not work in LMDE. I believe the only Debian based version that DraftSight supports at this time is for Ubuntu.

Where did you get the program from?

I downloaded the deb file from

http://www.3ds.com/products/draftsight/ ... draftsight

the one for Ubuntu. Thought it might work on LMDE, being a deb.

Mint 10 would have a better chance of being able to use the Ubuntu deb file, as Mint 10 is a remake of Ubuntu.

LMDE is based directly off Debian testing, most Ubuntu deb files will not work with it, sorry.

If you really want to use DraftSight, make a small partition (12G) and install Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is a great OS, I just happen to like Mint better.

I see. I do have Vista with DraftSight installed but I don't want to boot a different OS every time as I also run BOINC. I'll try wine instead.

Thanks.

Working fine here (LMDE64) just wish I knew how to use it :)

Launch from a terminal - any errors?

Code: Select all
/opt/dassault-systemes/draftsight/bin/DraftSight


I get the following errors, but it still runs!

It looks like a display issue. I guess it's because I'm using the default xserver-xorg-video-radeon driver. I've tried to install fglrx a while back but had a wold of pain with it and gave up. I have a RadeonHD 4350 card.

Yes, that does look like a display problem. I have an ATI card with fglrx running (ATI Mobility Radeon HD500 series card), runs OK for me. Think I followed the instructions on the Debian wiki/site, seems like a long time ago :)

[SOLVED]

I managed to install fglrx using the Debian instructions. DraftSight works now.

Thank you.
