QCad 2 ------ 1 What is QCad? This is QCad version 2.x. QCad is a simple 2D CAD program which runs under Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and several Unix systems. 2 License - The QCad Community edition for Linux, Unix systems and Mac OS X is released in the form of source code under the GPL (see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt). - QCad Professional and all QCad versions for Windows are proprietary software. 3 Installation 3.1 Installation of Binaries 3.1.1 Linux / Mac OS X Download the tar.gz file to any directory you prefer (e.g. /opt) and extract it: tar xfvz qcad-126.96.36.199-1-demo.linux.x86.tar.gz After extracting the tar.gz archive, there's no need to explicitly install QCad. If you have extracted the file in /opt, you should now have a directory called: /opt/qcad-188.8.131.52-1-demo.linux.x86 You can run QCad by typing: cd /opt/qcad-184.108.40.206-1-demo.linux.x86 ./qcad All files needed by QCad can reside in its own installation directory (recommended). To un-install QCad, simply remove the directory where you've extracted it: rm -r /opt/qcad-220.127.116.11-1-demo.linux.x86 Additionally there might be some thumbnail images and configuration files in your home directory: /home/user/.qcad/ 3.2 Installation from Sources (Community Edition) Please note that the source distributions of QCad are intended for developers and people who want to run QCad on a platform where no binaries exist. If you're not in these two groups of people, please consider downloading a binary instead. Please understand that RibbonSoft cannot offer support for compiling and running the QCad community edition. 3.2.1 Requirements You need to have the following tools and libraries installed to be ready to compile QCad from sources: - Qt 3.3 or later - qmake (part of the Qt package) - uic (part of the Qt package) - make - gcc 3.x 3.2.2 Preparation Set QTDIR to the directory where you've installed Qt. e.g.: export QTDIR=/opt/qt Set QMAKESPEC to the spec that is most suitable for your platform. e.g.: export QMAKESPEC=$QTDIR/mkspecs/linux-g++ Make sure that qmake and uic can be found in your path: qmake -v Qmake version: 1.04a (Qt 3.1.1) If that is not the case, please add the Qt binary path to your PATH environment variable: export PATH=$PATH:$QTDIR/bin 3.2.3 Compilation Change to the 'scripts' directory of your source code package: cd scripts Run the compilation script: sh ./build_qcad.sh
