First off, I just discovered LibreCAD and am quite pleased with it. Good job! Many thanks for an excellent program!
I am running this on LinuxMint 18 (uses Ubuntu repositories), which has version 2.0.9 in the repositories. I want something from 2.1.0+ so that I have the ability to lower/raise entities in the drawing stack. That's pretty much a "must have" for me. This capability is there in the Windows version that I currently have installed, 2.1.2. But I'm a Linux guy and hate using the Windows computer (it's the wife's, so I also have to fight for time on that computer).
I tried this PPA: ppa:librecad-dev/librecad-stable But it had the same version as the main repositories, 2.0.9
So next I tried this PPA: ppa:librecad-dev/librecad-daily It showed version 2.1.1 which sounded good. But when I told my package manager to install that, it installed 2.2.0-alpha instead! I don't want to go to an alpha release. That's too bleeding edge for me.
Sooooo, my question is, is there a PPA that installs what it advertises, and has something from the 2.1.x series? I could compile from source, but a good PPA would certainly be easier.
Thanks. I will definitely try 2.2.0. The reason I didn't want to go "alpha" quite yet is because I am in the middle of a hot tub, concrete, deck, electrical drawing project. I have a lot of work invested in that, and I didn't want to risk any potential alpha release corruption. After I'm done with this project, when I'm back in "play mode", I'll try 2.2.0.
Thanks again for a fantastic program. It really is very very good!
