I downloaded a demo version of a CAD package called BricsCAD.
This is a clone of CAD based on IntelliCAD code ( compatible with autocad dwg/dxf formats from R10 till 2007 )
There is a demo version available for Download,
Anyway, I downloaded the deb, converted it with deb2targz, unpacked the thing into ~/Build/pkg, ( this creates an /opt/Bricsys/.... and an /usr/bin/bricscad which is a symlink to the app ) wrote a PKGBUILD,, packed it with makepkg -Rd PKGBUILD. and installed the created package.
This is a 32 bits app, and I have lib32 packages installed.
Tried to run bricscad, and it reported an error about a missing libjpeg.so.62, so here i go, and fetch lib32-libjpeg6 from AUR, created the package, and installed it... this landed in /usr/lib32.
:crossing fingers: ...ran bricscad again, and again it reported the missing libjpeg.so.62... but the link libjpeg.so.6 and the library proprer libjpeg.so.6.0.0 both live in /usr/lib32...
so I ran ldconfig -v as root, as user ran
ln -s /usr/lib32/libjpeg.so.62 .
tried to run bricscad, and still it complains about the same missing lib...
What is the problem here...?
Shouldn´t this run against a 32 bits libjpeg.so.6 that I created from AUR...?
I was able to get the current version (V10.6.4) to work using the lib32-libjpeg package from the "multilib" repo (and after manually making the link.)
pacman -S lib32-libjpeg
ln -s libjpeg.so libjpeg.so.62
But then I needed the lib32-libpng12 (which I built & installed from the AUR)
But then I needed the lib32-nvidia-utils from the "multilib" repo (I'm using the Nvidia drivers)
So now the program runs, but I get "libclearlooks.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64" errors. The AUR package for lib32-gtk-engines does not seem to fix the error. I suspect that the package needs to be reworked for the recent multilib change.
I have done a recent update (pacman -Syu), so I'm as current as I can be.
Please try again, we want to encourge the Bricsys folks to keep developing a better cad program

Thanks for yur reply, and for your work...
I will try again this week... in the mean time, I have posted in Bricsys forum, stating my difficulties and suggested them to release a native 64 bits port...
In the mean time, BricsCad for windows demo runs allright in wine....
would be awesome to have a full 64 bits port for linux...
Personally i think that if they do not release the code, they should at least ship it with the libraries it uses ( at least the less basic of them ) so that it would be a more "universal" package, IMHO
