Getting QCAD 2.2.2 Professional Running under 64bit Fedora 15

Written by James McDonald

Just attempted to run qcad and got an error as follows

[[email protected] qcad-]$ ./qcad 
./qcad: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Found that my 64 bit version of libXrandr on Fedora 15 wouldn’t do it for qcad.

[[email protected] qcad-]$ locate libXrandr

So navigated to my local Fedora Mirror and grabbed the 32bit version and installed it

rpm -ivh libXrandr-1.3.1-2.fc15.i686.rpm

# you have it right when you have libXrandr in /usr/lib as well as lib64.
find /usr -name
