FreeCAD update help?

Postby Jaime » Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:57 am

Hi. I installed the freecad 0.10 from the software center but I just noticed that there's a newer version 0.11 and the one that's installed is acting weird. For example I can still see some of the menus from it, even though I'm now on the browser window. I can't figure out how to just upgrade to the new version. I downloaded the 32 bit release, but since I'm using the 64 bit I get the wrong architecture message and I can't install it. If I remember correctly I think there's a way for me to just point to it and do and apt-get and have it update. I'm not sure if this is possible on this program. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Here's the link to the program.

Thanks. No I haven't uninstall it yet. I figured you could just point to the software and then do the update. I also don't have any data, I'm just playing around with it for now. I'm not sure that just uninstalling it will stop the wrong architecture message though. I know usually that works, but lately I have noticed that the 64 bit os's won't let you do this, which I guess makes some sense, but what do I know.

If it shows up in the software list in Synaptic, you can use the "force" option to force package installation!!.

Synaptic > Package > Force Version

I just tried this and it doesn't work.

1. Open up a Terminal (Accessories / Terminal)
2. enter (without the quotes) 'sudo freeCAD -U'

This should run freeCAD as 'superuser' (root) - the -U = Update.
