No luck with wine here either. However, I've just been running DCAD beautifully using a virtual XP machine on VirtualBox. Cheating perhaps, but at least I can use my linux box!

Everybody who is working with CAD is looking forward to any software that can read and write DWG files and has at least LT functionality in Linux. The market is especially interesting right now because Distros like Mandriva, Linux Mint, Ubuntu and the future Google System make it very attractive for anybody to switch to Linux. Applications like OpenOffice, Gimp (although still some work needs to be done here), VLC, MythTV, Songbird make a fully functional system out of Linux PCs, whether you use it for private or commercial purposes.
Currently what's holding back a lot of architects, engineers and even designers is the lack of a real working CAD system.
So go for it! You might be first!

Hi, please add my voice to the request for a linux version, having to run it on virtual box sort of goes against the grain... ;D

I also want a Linux version!
But in the meanwhile, I tried to install it under wine (in Ubuntu 9.04), and I had the same trouble as others: the tool bar doesn't work.
Has someone found any solution?
Thanks a lot

I'd really like to have an osx version of xt/xt pro. The market for 2d drafting in osx is still waiting for something with this quality. Keep up the great work!

Me too fro Linux!!!!!! I'm waiting for a Linux version of DC... it could be really great!
I'd like a wine compatible version, but the best surely will be a native linux software. The DREAM a .deb or .rpm file!

Good job!

Here's another vote for a Linux port of DoubleCAD XT.

I recently started my own architects office and try to run on Free Linux (Kubuntu 64bit) software completely. The most important thing holding me back atm is a decent AutoCAD lookalike. QCAD just isn't in the same league... I've just discovered DoubleCAD and I'm very enthousiastic. Unforunately not on Linux, not even with Wine windows emulator.

Registered to vote for a Mac version. I agree with the previous posts: vmware, parallels, boot-camp all demand I buy, install and run a copy windows - which kinda misses the point. So yes, a proper native app is what I'd buy in a heartbeat.

OSX version is also why I registered.... just to vote for one.

There's no reason to switch from AutoCAD if it's not for a native Mac version. There's every reason to support the first CAD company that serves the Mac community with a decent drafting interface.

Hi everybody.

To run dCAD XT on wine and avoid crash at startup, you need to go to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/IMSIDesign/DoubleCAD XT/Program and delete or rename TCTips.exe.

There are still some problems with opening templates, and application crashes from time to time, display is bit garbage, but it works.

Good luck

hi asmodeus
i tried your work around i got further than i had before but still not good enough for me to be usable. what i would like to know is how you figured out your work around, i would have never figured out to delete that file. thanks for the tip.

Thanks, than doublecad looks beter but still not functional at all. It's still can't run on wine and be compare even with qCad couse theres a lot of crashes and no functionality (unles 5 minutes and one crash for one operation is ok). Indeed I like doublecad XT, but it just don't run on linux even with wine and emulated reactOS too :( . maybe it's code just can not be easy compiled for linux and of some reason (I suppose programing style) it's not running on wine even with one renamed .exe

Actualy, that's all what I have done.
I deleted this file after checking in sysguard what wine instances are runing, when program was crashing/hanging. TCTips.exe displays tips at startup so that was obvious that if program hangs at tips stage I need to rule this step out.

As  i posted before, there is still problem with opening templates (program brings errors about openinf file), display refres is garbage, and I can't save any file - program crashes.

See ya
