Re: Need to install 3.15.5-pr-linux-x86_32.run

Thanks for reply Andrew. In response I'm sure there's no disc space or permissions problems, and other drawings saved the day before this particular failure were OK. As regards the rectangle problem I can only say that "I did it the way I've always done it" and somehow the results were not as expect...

Re: Need to install 3.15.5-pr-linux-x86_32.run

Thank you Andrew, I was OK up to remembering the './qcad' command. Have now made a note of it; all will be well until I lose the note. Going back to what happened, have you any idea why QCAD would apparently fail to save my work? Or why when the command was to draw a rectangle 75mm x 135mm it drew a...

Need to install 3.15.5-pr-linux-x86_32.run

Have been experiencing problems with ver 3.13.1, eg failed on two occasions to save a file - I had to redraw both, and latest problem is that when trying to draw a simple rectangle qcad draws incorrect dimensions. I have downloaded ver 3.15.5 tar.gz but don't remember how to get it to run ( it curre...

'File - Print' show only Print to File, HP Deskjet not shown

Version: 3.13.1.0 (3.13.1) on Ubuntu 16.04.
When File-Print selected the only options shown are Print to File (PDF) or Print to File (Postscript). Why does my HP Deskjet 2540 no longer show?
Other print sources work OK.

Re: Opening QCAD 3.4.6 from Terminal in Ubuntu 14.04

Downloaded again, file size and checksum correct.
After input of 'tar xfvz qcad-3.12.6-pro-linux-x86_32.tar.gz', and after loading stopped I did:-

ray@ray-Aspire-5735:~$ ./qcad
bash: ./qcad: No such file or directory

What should I have done to get QCAD to open?

Re: Opening QCAD 3.4.6 from Terminal in Ubuntu 14.04

Re: Incorrect Printing from Print Preview

Thanks Andrew, will check driver and printer installation, Otherwise will copy into Libre CAD, which prints out fine (though is otherwise very limited compared to QCAD!)
