Re: [Solved] Draft Workbench: user.conf error at Startup in freecad-daily

I think all programmers are aware of this. But putting it into practice, and making the code more bulletproof, is a lot of work. Yeah, that's true. But in a first step it is maybe just useful to define sane defaults and some preliminary checks of the parameters. E.g. for the snapModes it would be g...

Re: [Solved] Draft Workbench: user.conf error at Startup in freecad-daily

Hey guys! @vocx yeah maybe :D Joking aside, the whole topic of validation of preferences and user input is an important one. OK, then I will mark this topic as solved and we open an extra topic on validation of config files and/or user input. Where would an appropriate place for this? Best wishes Jo...

Re: Draft Workbench: Error at Startup in freecad-daily

Hey vanuan and vocx, thanks again for your fast replies! Well, from a developer perspective, a framework/library is not a configuration option. It's a core part of an application. It's only the Linux desktop that is such a mess that you can't have multiple versions of a framework/library installed. ...

Re: Draft Workbench: Error at Startup in freecad-daily

Hey guys, Thank you for your fast answers! Mint 18.3 is based on Ubuntu 16.04 which would end support in 6 months. You would need to upgrade anyway so why wait? As a workaround, you could try the AppImage version. Thanks for the hint about the AppImage! Yeah, maybe I should upgrade at some time. I h...

Re: Draft Workbench: Error at Startup in freecad-daily

I wonder how this setting could have become corrupted in user.cfg. I don't know. I've never touched this setting, except for adding the missing '1' as discussed above. The follow-up errors are occuring, when want to create a bspline: 15:12:48 Draft workbench activated. 15:12:58 GuiCommand: BSpline ...

Re: Draft Workbench: Error at Startup in freecad-daily

Hey guys, @vanuan: Thanks for confirming and referring to the other thread. I mean, there is an entire subforum that says Draft, Arch, BIM. Yeah, my mistake. I very seldomly use Draft. Now it is moved anyway :mrgreen: As for your problem, try removing the configuration group from the .cfg file. <FCP...

Re: Draft Workbench: Error at Startup in freecad-daily

I looks like the snapModes setting is less than 14 characters. Check your configuration file. It should be somewhere in the home directory Hey vanuan, Thank you for your fast response! Yeah, from the error message I also guessed that there is anything wrong with the string length :mrgreen: I had th...

[Solved] Draft Workbench: user.conf error at Startup in freecad-daily

Hey guys, I don't know whether the developers corner is the right forum for a bug concerning a specific workbench. Please just move the topic if it is not appropriate here. Today I experienced a bug in DraftWorkbench after firing up the freecad-daily binary. 08:34:23 Traceback (most recent call last...

Re: FEM: Status of old GMSH interface PR and discussion of STL meshing through GMSH

In order to create mesh object from FEM mesh, select the FEM mesh and click in FEM wb (Mesh -> FEM mesh to mesh) https://wiki.freecadweb.org/FEM_FemMesh2Mesh Nice! Seems that I just not realized that this possibility exists. Thank you for pointing this out! :oops: Then forget my last remark :mrgreen:
