@quijoT I ran into that, too.

I just checked and there's a hotfix release that seems to have resolved the problem for me. Here's the URL for the RPM and the associated MD5sum for updating the pkgbuild:

With the last update, Draftsight crashes while using Ctl-C. Someone has experienced that?

@ whitesnow

I had also ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.

After installing mozplugger, DraftSight worked perfectly.

/usr/bin/draftsight ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment. free(): invalid pointer

I don't know how to continue from here.


So, again, the java stuff.

after moving /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-jre/jre/lib/ (f.e. mv /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-jre/jre/lib/ /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-jre/jre/lib/ out of the way draftsight runs.

Please update with:

CarterCox commented on 2018-10-10 21:56

Hi guys. I'm getting an error when launching: "Failed to load modules. The application will close. Please reinstall the application." Already reinstalled and nothing. Any ideas?

CiscoSanudo commented on 2018-06-21 05:08

I've got a fresh install with Manjaro 4.17.02 on it, installed Draftsight 2018SP2-2, no file association and freezes when trying to print drawings on PDF.

In order to be sure, I checked with another machine and same happens.

xoan commented on 2018-04-27 13:36

If /usr/bin/draftsight already contains the workaround, why is it duplicated in the .desktop file? It could just point to /usr/bin/draftsight %U right?

oberon2007 commented on 2018-04-27 13:32

Sorry. Forgot to push the updated launcher file. Fixed now.

meti commented on 2018-04-27 12:58

@oberon2007 I think you forgot to update che .desktop file checksum..
