Qcad and Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon

Postby sswcharlie » Tue Jul 08, 2014 8:09 am

Hi

Which is the best version of Qcad best to dowload ? 32 bit. The tar file or the other one. With the other one it starts to download the script but does not ever finish. I have to abort firefox to get out of it.

For an old timer, what is the best and 'easiest' way tou install ? Only a single click or two!


Thankyou

Hello Charles, welcome.

The installer would be the easiest option to use, download and save the file to your desktop, right click and set the permissions to readable and executable, then run in terminal.

To download the installer, you might have to right-click on the download button and choose 'Save as' or similar. You do not want your browser to display the installer - you want to download the file to disk.

Detailed installation instructions are available at:

Hi Clive and Andrew


Thanks for your info. Appreciated.
wi
From that I have got QCAD up and running great. Had a little hiccup with the name of the file (I copied it from the wrong place and it was slightly different)

My first time using the Terminal, was not that scary afterall!

Love QCAD and look forward to using. Will post a couple of questions on the forum re using different tools etc.

Thanks and regards

I clicked there in the shop, "https://www.ribbonsoft.com/shop/download/[…]/qcad-3.6.0-pro-linux-x86_64.run" and indeed was presented with text. You should configure the web-server, in apache eg:
Code: Select all
AddType application/octet-stream .run

If that is not enough, probably also add
Code: Select all
<FilesMatch \.(?i:run)$>
  Header set Content-Disposition attachment
</FilesMatch>

Yes, thanks. I am aware of this issue. However, I have to reply on our web server provider to fix the problem eventually.
