Does anyone know if there are CAD programs that work with VL 5.9.1 SOHO?  I am familiar with QCAD which I used with Sidux. Currently, I don't have an internet connection to search via GSlapt.

I have downloaded Multi Media Solutions Disc 1.5 from www.vectorlinuxsolutions.com - Qcad package for VL 5.9 is included - try that one out!

There's probably not a package for this in the repository, but I think this should build okay on most machines if you have the room on your hard drive and time to build it:

BRL-CAD

CAD program and Constructive Solid Geometry modeling system.  Developed by US military and now available as Open Source.

Intellicad(similar to autocad) for Linux, there are a couple, the best I found was Bricscad.
http://www.bricscad.com/. Does cost, not that much compared to autocad though.
Also you can get Progecad Smart (free for persoanl use-adds a note when printing) and run it with wine.

I use intellicad, but Qcad is quite good for smaller projects,well woth paying the 35euros for the full version (you get polylines) although the community version is good.

This thread's old, but maybe still apropriate?

Do any of the CAD packages available for VL support both mechanical drawing and electronics ?

thanks,

You resurrected a 4 year old thread on a OS version that's even older?  >.<

If you are looking for cad type software..I used wine and 3d home architect 4 on vector 6, you could also try google sketchup..there is also qcad and you could try dia..it is like graph paper and a pencil
