LibreCad shuts down without warning while working on drawing.

Jim Thompson
This post was updated on .
My LibreCad sometimes shuts down while I am working on a drawing. It usually results in a loss of the drawing, or at least the last couple of minutes work.
What can I do about this please?
I have (I think) the latest version of LibreCad. Version 2.0.8-1

edit:
Since this happened the last time, several function will now not work. Such as delete and lengthen functions. i have a second drawing that I am working on meanwhile, and it is still functional in all ways to the best of my knowledge.
I tried re-installing the program in my Synaptic Package Manager - Linux Mint 17.2.
I opened a new file and started a new drawing. The same problems occur; functions like draw a line parallel and delete will not work.

To know what the latest version is: https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/releases

If Mint is based on debian then maybe the daily PPA will work.
https://launchpad.net/~librecad-dev/+archive/ubuntu/librecad-daily

Otherwise build from source.

Thanks for the reply ravas. However, my expertise is not good enough to do any good with the links you provided for m. My ignorance.

I have now started up my older 32 bit Dell Vostro computer using Linux Mint 17.1 operating system with LibreCad version 2.0.2+xxxx installed.  I am drawing in this version without any of the problems that I have on the other  64 bit computer with the later version. So, I have a way out to keep drawing in the short term.
Of course, I still want to know what is causing the problems with the 2.0.8 version in my 64 bit computer and how to fix it, if it can be fixed.

Open a terminal and follow the instructions given on the PPA's site.

There is nothing to fix with 2.0.8; you need to upgrade.

Still the same!

It is starting to look to me like I should delete this version and try and find an earlier version to download.

Are there still older versions available?

I did scheduled updates in the last 24 hours. Since then, the version shown as installed when I click the "about" in an open drawing shows as:  

Version: 2.2.0-alpha
Compiler: GNU GCC 4.8.4
Compiled on: Dec  5 2016
Qt Version: 5.2.1
Boost Version: 1.54.0

While in the synaptic package manager it shows this version installed:



Can you advise which version I have actually installed and that I am using?  I can't, the above is confusing to me.

In the Synaptic Package Manager:



Under the help and about toolbar/heading, it shows the same:

Partial success!

Jim Thompson
I installed the latest PPA again.
Now some of the functions that were not working before are partially working. Draw parallel lines will work below a previously drawn horizontal line, but not above.
The delete function now appears to be working.

I will try tonights PPA tomorrow. This is some improvement, but still not functional for my purposes.
