is a light-weight, user-friendly CAD application in Linux ... not as mature as AutoCAD, (but, then what is)QCad
is an application for computer aided drafting (CAD) in two dimensions (2D).
you can create technical drawings such as plans for buildings, interiors, mechanical parts or schemas and diagrams.
websites >> http://www.qcad.org/qcad.htmlhttp://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad.html
Checkout QCad from the websites; but, don't download or install the application/program from there
Avoid all the hassle, of finding a CAD program from an outside source and go through the Synaptic Package Manager instead.
The Synaptic Repros are always easiest and "the recommended" method.
It can be easily installed through the Synaptic Manager. (Yup, it's there, I just checked)
By using the QCad program from the Synaptic Manager, all the dependancies are also, downloaded and sorted in their respective files.
QCad will then appear in the Menu and will be upgraded automatically.

As for "Why do I use QCad?"
I am a Registered Architect ... and I use GNU/Linux and Open Source exclusively for my work.
I use a combination of QCad
(in the repros) and Archimedes
for Linux (compiled from source) and Blender
