Question Trouble installing PyCAD R38


I'm having troubles most likely due to my stupidity here!!

I have visited:-
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyth...4.zip/download
and downloaded PythonCAD_Alfa_04.zip. I then extracted it and read the installation instructions enclosed:-

From Source (All Platform)
Install Python 2.6 or later
Install Sympy
Install Pyqt

execute python pythoncad_qt.py (under the pythoncad Folder)

So following this I checked in synaptic to see if I had Python, Sympy & Pyqt, all good. Then I cd'd into the extracted directory and did:-
Code:
gregg@burt:~/Desktop/PythonCAD$ pythoncad_qt.py
pythoncad_qt.py: command not found
gregg@burt:~/Desktop/PythonCAD$
So what am I missing here??

gregg@burt:~/Desktop/PythonCAD$ pythoncad_qt.py
is not supposed to work. "pythoncad_qt.py" is not in your path.
( And pythoncad_qt.py is not executable.)
Path is /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin/ etc. $ 'env | grep PATH' will tell.


The command 'python pythoncad_qt.py' will work.

Thanks, tried this and the terminal seemed to like it better but still not quite doing as I expected, it has just dropped a line and I have a flashing cursor with no 'gregg@burt:~' at the beggining as it usually does. Is this correct??

Edit

I'm a moron!! the app had launched under my web browser, Thanks for the help.

Hi, can you tell me your distro, your python version and qt version installed ?
Did you have any shell error ?

Regards,
Matteo

@ matteoboscolo : Welcome to LQ.

Why not tell, what you are using ? Please tell by every question !
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...Ask_a_Question
http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

As you can see from the @PClOStinspace profile, it's Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid.
Prerequisites for PyCAD in Ubuntu :

sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-sympy
( python2.6 / libpython2.6 is installed by default on Lucid.)

PyCAD will work on any Linux with Python-2.6 or later + Sympy + PyQt4 installed.
The terminal shows no errors on any of the tested distros.
PyCAD is alpha software and may have limited functionality.

1) Choose the 'Segment' button .... and select start and end points
in the "drawing area" : You have created a line.

2) Edit > > Undo : The line disappears. No crash.
Or highlight the line. Next : Modify > > Delete. No crash.

We are still waiting for you to tell, which OS you have :
Debian Etch, Debian Lenny, Debian Squeeze ? Sid ?
And what is the reply from : 'python --version' ?

Sorry, need to update my info, I'm now on Ubuntu 10.10.
Code:
gregg@burt:~$ python --version
Python 2.6.6
I have PyCAD working fine now, I was just being a bit dense. I don't have this crashing situation occuring at all, is that the problem you're having?
