I have just installed ubuntu & I am trying to install archimedes open cad. I have installed java 6 & I am trying to find the command line to type in java-jar archimedes-.jar as requested in the instructions, I am new to this environment so if you could point me in the right direction I would be thankfull.

    hello,
    the command line is called terminal. then you should change to the directory you have downloaded your installer (use the command 'cd')

    What file have you downloaded?
    If you go to Files and get the linux zip file, you should be able to extract that with a double click. It should create a folder called Archimedes for you and inside this folder there should be an executable file called archimedes. Just double click it should work.

    Prezado Hugo, bom dia :)

    Escrevo em português para melhor esclarecer minha dúvida, tudo bem?

    Segui o procedimento indicado de baixar a última versão do Archimedes aqui no SF.net (arquivo Archimedes-0.64.2.Exporter-linux.gtk.x86.zip). Foi descompactado e gerada a pasta Archimedes como você disse na resposta de 20/03. Entretanto clicando no arquivo executável Archimedes nada acontece. Eis a listagem da pasta:

    tuxmatrix@USS-Dephiant:~/Downloads/Archimedes$ ls -lha
    total 384K
    drwxr-xr-x 7 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 .

    drwxr-xr-x 3 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 workspace

    Também executando o arquivo como ./Archimedes nada acontece.

    Eis meu sistema operacional:

    tuxmatrix@USS-Dephiant:~/Downloads/Archimedes$ uname -a
    Linux USS-Dephiant 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:45:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Desde já agradeço por qualquer ajuda para que possa usar esse software em meus trabalhos acadêmicos.

    Paz, Vida Longa e Prospere!

    Now, I write in English, as you asked in another topic.

    Dear Hugo, good day:)

    I write in Portuguese to better clarify my question, okay?

    I followed the procedure indicated to download the latest version of Archimedes here in SF.net (file-Archimedes-0.64.2.Exporter linux.gtk.x86.zip). It was unpacked and generated the Archimedes folder as you said in response to
    20/03. However clicking the executable file Archimedes nothing happens.

    Here is a listing of the folder:

    tuxmatrix@USS-Dephiant:~/Downloads/Archimedes$ ls -lha
    total 384K
    drwxr-xr-x 7 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 .
    drwxr-xr-x 3 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 ..
    drwxr-xr-x 2 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-06-29 12:47 about_files
    -rw-r--r-- 1 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 577 2010-06-29 12:46 about.html
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 52K 2010-06-29 12:46 Archimedes
    drwxr-xr-x 9 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 configuration
    -rw-r--r-- 1 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 125 2010-06-29 12:46 .eclipseproduct
    drwxr-xr-x 13 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-06-29 12:47 features
    -rw-r--r-- 1 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 27K 2010-06-29 12:46 icon.xpm
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 260K 2010-06-29 12:46 libcairo-swt.so
    drwxr-xr-x 5 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 12K 2010-06-29 12:47 plugins
    drwxr-xr-x 3 tuxmatrix tuxmatrix 4,0K 2010-10-28 04:31 workspace

    Also running the file as. / Archimedes in the console nothing happens.

    Here is my operating system:

    tuxmatrix@USS-Dephiant:~/Downloads/Archimedes$ uname -a
    Linux USS-Dephiant 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:45:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Thanks in advance for any help so that you can use this software in my academic work.

    Peace, Live Long and Prosper!

    Hello,
    On this new version of Archimedes, it is no longer needed to run the command line.
    Download the linux version of the software (http://sourceforge.net/projects/arquimedes/files/Stable%20versions/0.64.2-Shortcuts/Archimedes-0.64.2.Exporter-linux.gtk.x86.zip/download), extract it (right-click on the zip file and selecting 'Extract Here...' should do that), enter the created folder and double click the Archimedes.sh file.

    Please post any other questions if that does not work for you.

    Hugo,

    Everything you said has already been done and reported in the original message. The problem is that clicking on the file Archimedes in the "/opt/Archimedes" nothing happens. You say it is a shell the file indicated on the package but it does not have the extension ".sh" and yes, it is a binary file, unable to read its contents. Nor is there any generating error messages, even when we ran the file through the command line.

    Thanks for your special attention.

    Peace, Live Long and Prosper!

    Actually I have the same problem. 32bit Version seems not to start in 64bit Ubuntu. Version 0.64.1 64bit starts but closes itself when starting a new file.

    regards max

    The jar version archimedes is no longer supported. Please use the RCP version which has an executable.
