    Default Draftsight crashes at file operations

    I have just installed and registered Draftsight from Dassault Systemes on OpenSuse 11.4.

    It works well provided I do not try to do any file operations. If I try to open/save file or start a new project the program crashes with the info window: "Program must be stopped. You can try to save the file...."

    Has anyone got any idea how to fix the problem?

    Thanks

    yours sure sounds like a Draftsight problem and not an openSUSE
    problem...try the Draftsight Community...if found this by using Google:

    To contact Technical Support for free customers you have to be logged in
    to the DraftSight community
    <https://swym.3ds.com/#community:70/iquestions> and select the iQuestion
    tab. On the lower right side you will see a button 'report a problem'
    fill out the form and an SR will automatically be created and assigned
    to the appropriate SME. In general I think its useful to be a member of
    the community to get information, training material etc. I would have
    opened an SR on your behalf but I am not able to access your email
    information which is needed in order to contact you. Also please make
    sure you give all the information needed to the SME working on your
    case. For help, how to report an issue to technical support please have
    a look at this 'How to report a problem'
    <https://swym.3ds.com/#post:2854> post.

    by the way, i also found in their downloadable FAQ that Draftsight runs
    on SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3 and 11 SP1, so you might ask them
    if it should be able to save/open files on openSUSE 11.4

    Sorry I can't address your problem. Here, using kde or Icewm I can open/save file with out a problem. I am having the same problem as yours when I am using draftsight with xfce and lxde.

    Conram,

    following your post I have checked it with Icewm - it works perfect. It crashes with Gnome.

    Also I had no issues with Draftsight in KDE4 when I tried it some time ago. It may be gnome-related only, perhaps a executable or folder permission wrongly set.

    I reported it to 3ds.com as DenverD advised.

    Hi,

    I think draftsight is better run using icewm. With other DE's it runs slow when doing large amount of drawing in a single drawing file.
    Not hundred percent sure though cause I am running an old machine, a dual core with 3 gig ram.

    In my case it works perfectly fine on one machine, completely crashes the video card on the other as soon as you try to open any file.

    Both machines have the same software (opensuse 11.4, KDE4.6, etc.,), the only significant difference appears to be the video card. Sorry I do not have specific details on the hardware right now, as I'm using a third machine to post this.

    If you noticed my earlier post, I was running draftsight in openSUSE 11.4 then.
    I am now running draftsight in openSUSE 12.1 64bit using xfce 4.8 with out any issue except for slowness when using it in a large drawing file.
    Maybe you can try icewm or add xfce and try running draftsight from those two I mentioned.
    If it work, perhaps it is a gnome issue not draftsight.
    One more thing, draftsight will limit it's capability until you register and confirm your registration.
    Some issue when not registered, maybe printing, opening and saving file.
