Library Browser not available.

Post by bearhawk426 » Sun Dec 25, 2011 5:11 pm

I have installed QCAD 3.0 RC2 in Kubuntu 11.10 (same as Ubuntu). I installed using the RC2 .bin file. Application starts and runs as expected except for the Library Browser. If I click on the icon for the Library browser I get the following error message:

Plugin LibraryBrowser: cannot connect to DB.
Driver error: Error opening database
Database error: unable to open database file
Database file: /home/jim/.config/RibbonSoft/library_3_0_0_Beta.db
Library browser will not be available.

The only file in the /home/jim/.config/RibbonSoft/ directory is QCAD.ini. The file library_3_0_0_Beta.db does not exist anywhere under my home directory. Do I need to generate this file somehow?

No, the data base should be created and updated automatically. We'll look into that: ... ask_id=441
