Awesome. PDF export with the symlink works like a charm with DraftSight 2019 SP1 ! Thanks

For those of you having problems with "Error (10000): PDF export module cannot be loaded", try creating the following symlink:

ln -s /usr/lib/ /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Libraries/

Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ --unset=XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP --unset=DESKTOP_SESSION --unset=GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID vblank_mode=0 /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux/DraftSight %U

Why are these XDG values unset and what does vblank_mode do here?

The only solution that i found for the pdf problem was to downgrade the pkg back to 2018SP3, when was working. I'was lucky and had the pkg on my cache, because aparently dassault has removed the link for past versions. If you also want to downgrade the pkg, first you need to locate the old pkg (draftsight-2018SP3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar or some like this) on you system, and it depends on whats method you use to manage AUR pkgs. If you use some AUR helpers, like yay or yaourt, posibly was on the "~/.cache/youraurhelper/draftsight". Anyway, once found the pkg, y can downgrade throungh "pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/package-old_version.pkg.tar.xz"

I'm having the same problem as @gerkujies printing to PDF, "Error 1000 Can't load module". Anyone knows some workaround?

oberon2007 commented on 2019-05-06 18:48

Hm, @gerkujies, might be an upstream bug or a library inconsistency. There isn't much we can do on a packaging basis as we are simply installing a binary. I'm not using the applicaton myself so cannot confirm the issue, sorry.

gerkujies commented on 2019-05-06 18:39

with this version in aur on manjaro don't work printing to PDF. Error 1000 Can't load module. How i can solve this problem? In earlier version's PDF was working fine.

@Rickay you are not disturbing at all!! :) So you mean you have to add a Path= entry? Yes, that seems to work! Will change that in the launcher.

Rickay commented on 2019-04-11 20:34

I'm very sorry, I'm not fluent in English and with the shell script langage, that is why probably I don't explain good. I use mainly the graphic interface installed with Manjaro, when you install Draftsight with the command makepkg -si, a launcher is automatically installed in the menu of the desktop, in the parameters of this launcher you have mainly four fields: "Name", "Commentary", "Command" and "Working directory", the field "Working directory" is empty. When I used the launcher so it didn't work, I got the message "Impossible to load the modules", I just mean to say when you fill this field with "/opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux" then it works. Perhaps this will help some new users as me. I promise it's the first and last time I'll disturb you
