I'm having the same problem as @gerkujies printing to PDF, "Error 1000 Can't load module". Anyone knows some workaround?

oberon2007 commented on 2019-05-06 18:48

Hm, @gerkujies, might be an upstream bug or a library inconsistency. There isn't much we can do on a packaging basis as we are simply installing a binary. I'm not using the applicaton myself so cannot confirm the issue, sorry.

with this version in aur on manjaro don't work printing to PDF. Error 1000 Can't load module. How i can solve this problem? In earlier version's PDF was working fine.

@Rickay you are not disturbing at all!! :) So you mean you have to add a Path= entry? Yes, that seems to work! Will change that in the launcher.

Rickay commented on 2019-04-11 20:34

I'm very sorry, I'm not fluent in English and with the shell script langage, that is why probably I don't explain good. I use mainly the graphic interface installed with Manjaro, when you install Draftsight with the command makepkg -si, a launcher is automatically installed in the menu of the desktop, in the parameters of this launcher you have mainly four fields: "Name", "Commentary", "Command" and "Working directory", the field "Working directory" is empty. When I used the launcher so it didn't work, I got the message "Impossible to load the modules", I just mean to say when you fill this field with "/opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux" then it works. Perhaps this will help some new users as me. I promise it's the first and last time I'll disturb you

@Rickay as far as I can see that's what we already have!

Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ --unset=XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP --unset=DESKTOP_SESSION --unset=GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID vblank_mode=0 /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux/DraftSight %U

I use Manjaro, to be able to use Draftsight,I had to modify the launcher to add the path "/opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux" as Working Directory

I was also able to run Draftsight from the /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux folder but some things still do not work such as EXPORTPDF.

I found a way around the "Failed to load modules." error.

If you simply run the ./DraftSight binary while in the /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux folder everything appears to work fine.

cd /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux/ && ./DraftSight

Library load path just uses local dir maybe?
