[SOLVED] EdrawMax

Post by morales » Sat Oct 20, 2018 3:30 pm

EdrawMax is a Visio alternative. what it says is to open terminal and navigate to the directory of the .run file. this is where i'm having the problem cause i cant get to the run file in my terminal.
next i type tar -zxvf edrawmax-9-64-en.tar.gz
then i type chmod +x EdrawMax-9-64.run
last i type sudo ./EdrawMax-9-64.run
The edrawmax label is in office menu now but when i click on it nothing happens.
Please help a noob out!

thank you

I tried to figure it out.
I am missing an qt plugin xcb to launch it.
And the internet is literally filled with reports about this error message.
after an hour I gave up.
