I am also trying to get a easy to use more functional than Qcad
rendition of Auto-Cad lt running on Linux. I have had no success. I have
just been laid off work so I will have some time to try some things. I
have heard of a program called Varkon, looks like a good candidate but I
have not had the time to get it running yet. Have a look and see what
you think, I would be interested.

Thanks, Dale
