LibreCAD's partlibrary workaround for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty

After testing Ubuntu 11.04 with the new Unity Shell for some time, I realized that the old way to embed QCAD's partlibrary in LibreCAD via the creation of the .librecad folder inside your home folder doesn't work anymore.
I have found a better way to use partlibrary with LibreCAD which I expect that works in all distros and OSes.

First launch LibreCAD
Then go to menu Edit--Application Preferences
Choose the tab Paths
In the Part Libraries line write the full path to your partlibrary folder.
Press OK

  1. Spyros,

    Currently also this directory is loaded: dirList.append(QDesktopServices::storageLocation(QDesktopServices::DocumentsLocation) + "/" + appDirName + "/" + subDirectory);

    The documents directory. I would need to check if this works on Linux, but you can do something similar in your home directory.

    Is this something you can blog about, or would like me to look that up?
