DraftSight for LINUX Screenshot

Wondering what DraftSight will look like when the Linux version is released?  Well…wonder no more.  Here’s a screenshot!  Looks just as clean as the MAC & Windows versions.  I did not hear exactly when we might see this available for download, but it will follow the MAC version which is due out in a couple of weeks.  Pretty cool to see things going platform independent.

    Yeah, I run under Wine but a native version for Linux is awesome.

  • Hi Ricky,

    Do you know if your screen capture is free to use? I haven’t found its source, and I wish to use it in a creative commons licenced wiki. I’m guessing it’s not yours by the login name at top right. :-P

    I’d just like to say that I’ve sucessfully instaled the Ubuntu package on Mint 9 and opened a fairly complex drawing made in AutoCAD 2011. The redrawing is really slow (no acceleration is used, I think it uses a proprietary extension since cairo based apps redraw much faster on my computer) but all in all it’s very useful.

    I was so happy to finally see a decent CAD program running on Ubuntu Linux. Then I found out: IT WILL NOT RUN ON 64-BIT SYSTEM. Well, it’s back to VBox and virtual Windows Machine running AutoCAD… Too bad.

     Actually, after extensive research, I found the way to install it on 64-bit Ubuntu. It runs, and I could ALMOST use it… However, the current version has a Layer Manager out of whack, so it is useless to me. Well, VBox is still working…

  • good condent thank you for linux example.

  • Great Job. Would be good if you could also post a wiring sciheatmc as I am interested in what you use at each of your TVs I am guessing media portal is in a client-server set up based on your mention all is delivered by IP

  • Haha, shouldn’t you be charging for that kind of knowledge?!
