DraftSight for me is the best replacement for AutoCad. But when Ubuntu user upgrade to 11.10, they will face problem when  installing DraftSight. There is some problem with dependency .   However, there is easy fix for that just install manually the dependency package from Ubuntu.

So if you want DraftSight on Ubuntu 11.10 32bit you have to:

  • Download and install manually the dependency package from Ubuntu.
  • Install DraftSight
  • Alternatively use the terminal: sudo dpkg -i DraftSight.deb. Before that you may have to install libdirectfb-extra and sendmail manually.

Check out the DraftSight Master Series – it will be a useful tool, especially for a beginner. Maybe it is a good idea to share this flipbook with your friends and colleagues. Hope you enjoy it.
