1) do the equivalent of "Apt purge FreeCAD" rather than just "Apt Remove FreeCAD" so have found some old left overs from 0.17 and its add ons have caused an issue.
2) remove all add ons and see if your problems go away
3) on Ubuntu there was once a add-ons repository ....
4) The OCC version that your FreeCAD has been compiled with is extremely old ...
5) your package has used QT4 and Python2 which should still work ...
Thanks for all the tips and advice
ran an 'apt purge' which translates to in fedora land to 'dnf remove freecad', (which removed many other rpm dependcies too.)
and removed my .FreeCAD folder completely. It seems I do not have any other freecad addons on my system
Next I reinstalled using 'dnf install freecad'.
outcome: picked up two more workbenches ?techdraw?, but the rest seems still the same version level
OS: "Fedora release 29 (Twenty Nine)"
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Build type: Unknown
Python version: 2.7.15
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 3.1.3
OCC version: 6.9.1.oce-0.18
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)
Interestingly Fedora 29 includes/supports Python3 and QT5. Not sure why the freecad rpms are build using python2. Same goes probably for the OCE/OCC version.
Should I rather built Freecad from scratch on my machine? I will look into that.
F.Y.I. problem is still the same. What baffles me that this was not an issue with Freecad 0.17.
Here a more simple way to re-create the problem.
- open freecad and create a new part. e.g. cube
- now just click on 'new' and I see FreeCad take a dive
