May you change "draftsight.desktop" little:
1. add " %U" to end of "Exec" line. (for "open with" functionality in nautilus)
2. set "Icon=draftsight". (for use theme icon if it exist)

Added libpng12 as a dependancy. Thanks for the heads-up, guys.

Please add 'libpng12' to the depends list.

Package checksums updated. Thank you aTom42 for the concise report.

Draftsight has been updated upstream with SP1 so AUR package doesn't build anymore (wrong package checksum). Please, update PKGBUILD.

I could build the package successfully by changing the md5sum in PKGBUILD with the new one : 1bc8b2d4c69314f0d612a6c8e09d5acb.

The mouse lag issue is gone.Very, Very Nice! Thanks!

The mouse lag issue is less annoying in v2015sp3 when I disable sync to VBlank in the nvidia driver.

I can confirm the same behaviour as hybroid (2015-11-10) below, but with Intel graphics.

It is possible to avoid the mouse slowdown by starting Draftsight when mouse unplugged. When plugged back into USB, mouse motion is OK but mouse wheel doesn't zoom, however Touchpad zoom still works.

The Mouse wheel is still functional with double-click (zooms to drawing extents), however. Looks like Draftsight initialises differently according to input device, but does not correctly handle hotplugged devices.

Mouse lag issues have been reported on the 'Community' forum for months, but it seems nobody from Dassault has ever read or acted on them.
