Did you Google for it?

From most of what I've read, there are some commercial products for Linux, as well as some how-to's on how to get Autocad Windows running under Linux.

Check here:

Qcad is probably in your Ubuntu repo, and has 'dxf' as native file.
'dwg2dxf' from
https://sourceforge.net/project/show...group_id=30996
will convert most 'dwg' to 'dxf'
Please also see
