Referring to the issue mentioned from luiscuadrado123, I had same error. I believe that its related to space in the /tmp folder/partition. Draftsight is a really big install so clearing this folder first or enlarging it if needs be may be required

i have a problem upgrading this software since a few days...

after downloading since 500mb (this is alot of mb).. when initiating package ().. alot of error appears saying that i "there is no space in device"

but i realy have space in my Manjaro Instalation partition (44.6gb free)

what could be the problem?? maybe the temp folder is in another partition? or is restringed in space?

There is no software like this because there is no really open source library about it. Each time there is one like opendwgalliance, autodesk put them to lawyer and project fail. But there is a new library at this time, libopencad from which I hope will be a success project. If there is library, it could be done at this time a good software ... draftsight is the same software as ares commander

Blackisle, I'm afraid this is the closest software I can find to AutoCAD. And thank god it's free, and available on Linux. I love AutoCAD's modal input too much to use any other CAD application. I don't think you'll find any other CAD software on Linux that provides this many features and this much functionality, at the moment. Too bad it's not an open-source project :/

magic, cheers Crispy24 :) Have you come across a better 2D CAD application for linux? Draftsight is about as close to AutoCAD LT as I've found. Thanks again for packaging this!
