brlcad will tab-complete, but does not run after installing.

[ctag@comp ~]$ brlcad
brlcad         brlcad-config  
[ctag@comp ~]$ brlcad
bash: brlcad: command not found

Edit: Ok, I just learned that the ui is separated from brlcad. Running /opt/brlcad/bin/mged produces a flickering screen that I can't use. Running /opt/brlcad/bin/archer seems to work!

brlcad is failing the validity check when I try to install it.

Sorry for answering that late.

The solution is quite old:
At the end is the solution.

As I removed brlcad and did the mkinitcpio again all was running fine afterwards.

@Baumi: Thanks for reporting this issue. My system does not reproduce this situation; would you be able to provide further information on how you identified this?

Baumi commented on 2017-08-02 12:29

brlcad is quite dangerous.
If you installed it and do a update inlcluding "mkinitcpio -p linux" your system will be broken.
The reason is, that some modules from gzip are not compatible between brlcad and your running system. And mknitcpio accidentally takes the wrong one to create an image.
Only repair method: uninstall brlcad, do an manual "mkinitcpio -p linux" and reboot. At least on my box it worked.

@ejno, no I hadn't. If it's documented somewhere I missed it, sorry

@Lacrymology: Hi, did you re-login or source /etc/profile.d/ ?

I can't see any binaries installed in a common path location.

@pegasusearl: The primary editing interface is MGED (, which can be started by running "mged" from the command line. The successor (alpha release) editing interface is Archer, which can be run as "archer".
