[resolved] FC 0.19 20310 DraftTrackers module not found

Postby PMac » Thu Apr 02, 2020 5:51 pm

OS: Linux Mint 19.3 (X-Cinnamon/cinnamon2d)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.20310 (Git) AppImage
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 2cac4898d7d62276fbbaaef5b4cecb9bfdd29a33
Python version: 3.8.2
Qt version: 5.12.5
Coin version: 4.0.0
OCC version: 7.4.0
Locale: English/New Zealand (en_NZ)

It appears the file drafttrackers.py has not been included in this version. (have checked file does not exist in mounted /usr/Mod/Draft folder)

Replicate fault:
Open v0.19 20310
Open new file
Arch workbench
Attempt to create a structure (click structure icon on toolbar to create a Column or a Beam from scratch)

v 20310 fails and reports as below
Running the Python command 'Arch_Structure' failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/tmp/.mount_FreeCArDuVoZ/usr/Mod/Arch/ArchStructure.py", line 250, in Activated
import DraftTrackers,ArchPrecast

No module named 'DraftTrackers'


Previous version 20209 worked OK and as expected without error.

Am using appimage updates from looo after each Sunday eg FreeCAD_0.19-20310-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage

Update (a week plus later): Newly released FreeCAD_0.19-20406-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage update appears to have resolved the reported issue. Thanks to those involved.

This is already solved in the master code. You need to get the absolutely latest code.

Thanks for prompt reply Vocx. Will confirm after next Sunday's appimage update.

Hi arnn,
The https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases page now has the updated v0.19-20406 for macOS and other versions.

The appimages are only updated once weekly (I start checking for them from Sundays onward after user looo does his weekly update routines). Alternatively, the master version in github is continuously updated with any development changes, but to utilise these incremental changes you need to download and compile the full master each time locally on your machine. I prefer to await the weekly appimage updates - no horrendous data consuming downloads or local compiling required.

As for the queried Win (Windows) versions, they appear to quite often have different version numbers that I assume probably have OS specific changes in them. If you're wishing to utilise the latest appimages - remember they're only updated weekly or longer.

Hope this helps.
