Thread: Looking for viewer for .dwf (autodesk) file

  1. #1

    Default Looking for viewer for .dwf (autodesk) file

    I'd like a suggestion for an app in a safe repository that will view a .dwf file
    I see various apps available from sites that I am unfamiliar with so I'm hoping someone here has a recommendation.

    Running KDE on 13.1x64

    Thanks, Jon

    This is a bit outta my experience. Apparently I need to compile it myself and need to gather up additional library files and install QT Development (I don't know if I need to install 32bit or 64bit libs). I've seen comments that some of the files won't link. I guess if no one has other suggestions I'll have to do a lot of reading & study....

    OK, thanks.

    For anyone in the future checking this thread, the lx-viewer package won't work, or at least I couldn't get anywhere. There are 2 files (ad2.a & ad3a) required that are no longer available for download. Maybe they are floating around somewhere but I couldn't find them.
