http://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/ Cad


I downloaded the set up file or image for the cad program below, which appeared to install but I can not find it on any of the program listings.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/

Thanks

The program appeared to go through the installation procedure, I have had this problems many time with Linux where I install a program and it is not listed.

You will need one of these :
( Ref. the link, post # 2 , @amani.)

freecad_0.9.2646-1karmic_i386.deb
freecad_0.9.2646-1testing1_i386.deb
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/free-cad/
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...title=Download

> > http://sourceforge.net/projects/free...6.deb/download

http://sourceforge.net/projects/free...6.deb/download

Unless you also installed all the dependencies, the package
you downloaded, will not have much chance to work.

With nearly all the cad programs for Linux there is no install instructions, any instructions are for windows.

In the download for Linux, cad programs, there is so much other material that needs downloading as well.

You should use the package manager - synaptic and add special repositories (if required).
That is for qcad, pythoncad, sage, sagcad, VARCON etc
