    Here what it seems to me a very useful site containing various links to CAD software on Linux:

    Check out QCad, you can find it on synaptic.

    With QCad 2 you can easily construct and change drawings with ISO-texts and
    many other features and save them as DXF-files. These DXF-files are the
    interface to many CAD-systems such as AutoCADR and many others.

    Yeah, it looks like trial version --> pay for premium.

    There is a GPL'd community version there though.

    Re: autocad equivalent

    I've seen this complaint everywhere (lack of CAD software), but to be honest I didn't even know what it was.

    I can see why this piece of software would be so important to some users, though not most..

    Can anyone recommend a good, unified GPL CAD app to play around with? There seem to be a ton of apps for specific tasks and work, but few that are more unified (general purpose drafting)..
