• Draftsight CAD application


    Hi,

    Does anyone here know if Draftsight is available for Antergos/Arch? I need it occasionally and Draftsight is the only CAD applications that is the closest to Autocad (layout screen, usage of layers and files, etc.).

    Thanks!

  • It is available from (at least) two repos:

    • AUR, for all Arch users
    • BlueStar, if you use it
    $ yaourt Draftsight
    1 bluestar/draftsight V1R4.0.1-1
        Dassault Systemes' freeware CAD software for your DWG files.
    2 aur/draftsight 2016SP2-1 (30) (1.57)
        Freeware CAD software for your DWG/DXF files.
    ==> Enter n° of packages to be installed (ex: 1 2 3 or 1-3)
    ==> -------------------------------------------------------
    ==> No, thanks
    $ 
    

    Respond with 2 to build and install Draftsight from AUR, in this example.

    If you don’t have 3rd party repos attached, then probably you’ll have the only option - to install Draftsight from AUR. yaourt will number it with 1. Respond with 1.
