DraftSight is an AutoCAD look-alike that has worked well for me in both Windows and MAC OS. I am trying to switch over to Linux and tried to install it on my Loki 0.4 machine.

I found some advice on this page: https://askubuntu.com/questions/466522/how-to-install-draftsight-on-ubuntu-64bits

I ran this command in Terminal: sudo apt-get install libuuid1:i386 libice6:i386 libsm6:i386 libxt6:i386 libaudio2:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 libcanberra-gtk0:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386

Draftsight started but after the usual registration window it flashed a white window and then disappeared.

I don't recall where I found the suggestion to run this command: cd /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux/

and then this: ./DraftSight

I then got this error message: Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pantheon-filechooser-module"

(DraftSight:2826): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

(DraftSight:2826): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

A link on this page: gtk2 apps not working in elementary

Sent me here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/elementaryos/+bug/1472836

But the bug does not seem to be fixed, at least as far as DraftSight is concerned.

I just recently ran updates and upgrades for my Elementary OS and I downloaded the current version of DraftSight.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

Thanks

I just installed it on Loki, and it works perfectly fine. Installed it using Eddy. I got these errors too but it does not affect Draftsight starting and working normally.

You need to add QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk2 before the draftsight command.

I would try to install pixmap with Synaptic
