rpath.path is not needed any more as the fix is in the git repo.

Hi s218, sorry it took so long, was on holiday :)
Please send me a more detailed description of the bug that includes the exact steps that trigger the segfault.

Edit: If you encounter segfaults it's always a good idear to rebuild the package before reporting. Updated dependencies often cause the program to segfault ;)

The program is collected, launched, but when you try to create a Patch crashes. Collected in Opencus, Ubuntu is working fine.

Hey everyone,
This package now includes support for netgen. I'm going to file a delete request for freecad-netgen-git soon. If you experience any problems feel free to report them here :)

This package now builds against opencascade7. The freecad-qt5 package is going to follow soon - the freecad-netgen-git package not so soon because I'm having troubles with netgen. The only version of netgen that supports opencascade 7.1 is the master branch of their git repo which isn't supported by freecad. Gonna have a look at how it's done in the daily ppa of freecad in the coming days.

Hi, for everyone interested in a occ 7.1 build.
There are some problems with the opencascade7 aur package, I already contacted the maintainer. If you can't wait you can try the following two packages from my github page: and (kind of the experimental version of this package)

drhooves, can we bump the OCC version to 7.1
They've succeeded with Ubuntu recently

drhooves commented on 2017-01-25 08:23

@Kunda Definitely, I'm gonna give it a try later today.

@drhooves could you (and would you be interested to) create a build that is built against Qt5? (See

Hi everyone,
I'm the new maintainer of this package. It's now up
to date again. Also I moved the installation to
/opt/freecad because some modules depend on the
default folder structure (see
