Unhappy Problems with new drawing program


There is a great new CAD program available for free (DWG!) called draftSight. Tried repeatedly to install through Ubuntu software center, but something failed every time. Fails to install some package or whatever... So I decided to install the Windows version through Wine instead. All was OK and I made a drawing, but when trying to print it I got "Call not implemented". When trying to manually tell the printing program that the name of the printer is "Desktop-F2400-series" it ignores me and jumps back to "None" and "Call not implemented". Furthermore it keeps mocking me by saying something like "Nothing will be printed unless a printer is added".
Does anyone know how to get the printing going?
Distro: Oneiric

Well seeing as there IS a native version, I don't see why you'd consider using wine in the first place. Concentrate on making the proper version work. What's so hard about installing it? How does it fail?

I'll tell you what happened. I tried to install (repeatedly) through Ubuntu software center. Every time it complained that it cannot download some package, don't remember what it is called. OK, so I tried to download to my laptop, this asked me if I want it to do it through GDebi, I clicked yes and everything went smoothly. So I registered the program as asked, turned it on, and now there is a drawing program on my laptop that starts and then immediately stops and turns off by itself. Maybe, I thougt, could I install it on my desktop through the same GDebi, so first I installed GDebi, then the drawing program and it did not cause me any problems. When trying to start the program it started, and when trying to save the drawing the program disappears. Same thing when trying to print.
After that I tried through wine, and the result is as I reported earlier. So now I have 3 registered versions that don't work. At this stage, I need help, not sarcasm, thank you...

This is solved, I had to change GTK to Ambiance, and that solved the problem. Wonderful!
