DraftSight on Linux Mint 13 Maya x64

Postby es89 on Sun May 27, 2012 5:29 pm

This is recipe to install, it works for DraftSight V1R2:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libdirectfb-extra libxcb-render-util0
sudo apt-get install libaudio2:i386
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386
sudo dpkg --force-architecture –i DraftSight.deb


If there are problems, maybe you need to install sendmail
Code: Select all
sudo apt get install sendmail sendmail-base sendmail-bin sendmail-cf


If you have another language (not English) and something wrong with interface fonts, install this and run:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install qt4-qtconfig
qtconfig

and then in settings change used font. So on, for example, in Russian-interfaced Mint some programs (vlc, and some others, including qtconfig) also have problems with fonts, change interface font in appearance settings of your shell.

I hope, this will save time for someone, I spent 2 hours to solve problems.

Tried this on my Linux Mint 13 Maya MATE installation, and it worked:

One problem, though (and quite a big one!): When Update Manager did its periodic checks on my packages, it automatically identified my DraftSight installation as a broken package, and promptly removed it! :oops:

I had the same problem with update deleting Draftsight. The only solution I found was to download the Windows version and run it on WinXP on the virtual machine.

Hello,

I'm new to the Linux mint and also keen to switch to Draftsight from my traditional CAD program. I have Linux Mint Maya 13 x64. I could manage to install and run Draftsight on my pc last week.
However it doesn't seem to work at all after I installed automatic updates. I uninstalled Draftsight, tried to reinstall the package via Gdebi and here is the result :

Code: Select all
(Reading database ... 159943 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking dassault-systemes-draftsight (from .../mintx64/Downloads/draftSight.deb) ...
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: line 21: /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/ShowLicence: No such file or directory
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
dpkg: error processing /home/mint/Downloads/draftSight.deb (--install):
 subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /home/mintx64/Downloads/draftSight.deb


It was working on Friday. Do you think that I can revert the updates I've made and get the program back on track again?
