Hi to all,
I would like to also ask that double cad be ported to linux (ubuntu). I have used design cad 3d max with ubuntu 8.04, with the help of WINE. It was not perfect but better than most other offerings for linux. I ran design cad 3d max until i upgraded to ubuntu 9.04, with that also came a newer version of wine and since the up grade no more 3dmax. I tried to install double cad with ubuntu 9.04, all went very well but when i try to run the program all i get is a beep sound anywhere that i click the mouse. I will try to down grade the version of WINE to see if that works better and let you know. in the meantime i will experiment with double cad under windows to see the look and feel.
I down graded WINE to version 1.1.18 from 1.1.21 this was as low as i could go for ubuntu 9.04. and it not work so i tried to upgrade to WINE version 1.1.22, same result would not work. I did try WINE 1.0.0 from ubuntu 8.10 that was worse, the program did not even try to load.
Hope this information is useful to some one.
