Hi, I just installed this converter, is there anything I did not understand
I thought he was converting an Fc drawing to a DWG
but he only offers me to convert a DWG to .... DWG :!:
and when I want to put a file of my database in "inpout" it does not find any, whereas there are many :?:

Freecad can not import .DWG files. The convertor is used to convert .DWG files to .DXF files. DXF files can be imported in Freecad

I just tested it on Ubuntu 18.04 and it works. We'll have to revise the wiki and change all mention of Teigha to ODA. FreeCAD's DWG import-export preferences should be changed as well...
Hi Normand,
please can you explain how to install ODA on Ubuntu 18.04.
Thank you so much
Best regards
Wilfried
