[SOLVED] Has anybody installed Librecad 2.0.0rc2 yet?

Postby janthree » Sun Oct 20, 2013 1:38 am

Has anybody installed Librecad 2.0.0rc2 yet? I would like to update to 2.0 but need some guidance on the best installation procedure since it is not showing up in Synaptic.

Thanks.

Librecad 2.0 doesn't show up in Synaptic because you haven't added the repository for it. It's currently only in Debian Experimental.

To get it, add the repository:

Code: Select all

su -c 'echo deb http://http.debian.net/debian experimental main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/exp.list'
then update the package lists and install:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -t experimental install librecad
and then remove the experimental repository (you probably wouldn't want to keep it):

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/exp.list
sudo apt-get update

Your commands worked like a charm Monsta. LibreCad 2.0.0rc2 is installed and running without a hitch. Let me say that the kind of clear, concise, straight-forward advice you gave is what keeps Linux running for novices like me. Thank you.

I was able to add the repos and install Librecad with no problems, but when I clicked on the Help/Manual I got the "Buggers, I couldn't find the helpfiles on the system" message. Can't find any additional packages to install on Synaptic or Software Manager. No sign of it on the Librecad web site either.
Also Help/About reports not version 2.0.0rc2 but

Version: 1.0.1
SCM Revision: 1.0.0
Compiled on: Feb 21 2012
Portions (c) 2011 by R. van Twisk

Is there a different repository for the RC/experimental version?

Version 2.0.1+nolibs-1 is in Debian Unstable repo right now. I don't know if it will fix the problem, but you can try it anyway.
