I have found that leocad export to 3ds format does not work anymore in MGA6. Furthermore, the version 18.01 annouces it can open new LXF format that has become common in LDRAW site.
I will push the 18.01 version to updates_testing to see if both problems are fixed.
The bug is fixed, but we need qt update to be pushed.
Can you give SRPM and list RPMs please José.
Oh sorry! I have just triggered a rebuild against Qt 5.9.4 as it was updated again for Plasma. So the release is 2 instead of 1 for the binary rpm.
Leocad export to 3ds format does not work in MGA6. This update provides version 18.01 that fixes this bug and also can open new LXF format that has become common in LDRAW site.
I tried to build against Qt 5.6, but failed to convince urpmi... while at that, I have updated to latest 18.02 version :
Leocad export to 3ds format does not work in MGA6. This update provides version 18.02 that fixes this bug and also can open new LXF format that has become common in LDRAW site.
It's not clear José.
Are there two srpms, leocad and leocad-data?
Or just one, leocad-data?
This is important data to be able to push to updates.
NM - checked svnweb. Two srpms.
Exported a model to 3DS with version 18.02 in a i586.
Could not find any LXF file on the http://www.ldraw.org/ site, or anywhere else.
BEFORE the update:
pulled in nothing more.
Made a small wall, 'save as' offered .ldr .dat .mpd.
Saved it as .ldr
Right-clicking that file offered LeoCad, which did not work. However, starting the program then opening the file did.
also pulled in a couple of Qt updates, disappeared before I could note them.
After the update, right-clicking the .ldr file showed LeoCAD, but did nothing. Worse, LeoCAD did not start from the menu. Will logout to see whether that helps.
Neither re-starting X nor re-booting helped:
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
Available platform plugins are: wayland-org.kde.kwin.qpa, eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)
I think these are the 2 Qt pkgs pulled in with the Leocad update:
I am running LXDE hoping that Qt changes will not hurt it.
It looks as if I must dare the whole Qt update as well... Yes, I see now that this update depends on it, 22657. Back later.
OK, after the whole Qt5 update, LeoCAD works fine. It opens the .ldr file from its context menu, or application 'open'. I do not know the application enough, because I notice now Import & Export File menu options; were they there before? BTAIM it *does* export as 3D_Studio .3ds format.
To test whether it would accept an .lxf file, I simply re-named one thus. Straight 'open' did not show it, but 'import' 'LEGO digital designer' did. The import failed because the file was not what it seemed; legit.
This update is good. Validating (in league with the Qt update).
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
