Re: How to change dark background for message line?

And I installed the gnome-color-chooser, but didn't see how or what to change the color that would influence the tooltip background. The tooltips setting is under the "Specific" tab in Gnome-color-chooser. After ticking the box next to the Background a colour wheel will appear when the colour box i...

Re: Creating cone or pyramide

Look in the 3D manual for "Ruled Surface". If you want the top of the pyramid to be a true point you would have to be very precise with the definition -- it will be easier to have a very small flat face on the top.

Re: How to change dark background for message line?

You could try two things that might work. Change the desktop theme, or install gnome-color-choser and change the tooltips settings with it. However, I've tried both on Mint-17/Cinnamon-2.2.16 (which is based on Gnome 2), and neither will change Medusa -- or Firefox for that matter. Wherever Medusa i...

Re: installation on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (twin Xeon) resolved

I hope this helps someone. All that happened was that the graphics system was autoremoved when the i386 packages were installed. I've been burned by this before, so now I check the lists of "To be installed" and "To be removed" very carefully. In principle nothing should be removed that isn't repla...

Re: 3D setting Datum

I have downloaded your sheet, and it is just a default empty drawing. Can you upload a copy of the one that has the problem?

Re: 3D setting Datum

Unfortunately for you not many people use Medusa Sheet Metal, and not many people read this forum. It's over 25 years since I last used SMD, but I'll try to have a look at your drawing later this week (now that I've jumped through all the hoops to install Medusa on a new Linux machine...).

Re: Medusa4 on ubuntu 14.04 64bit

Not a direct solution, but it works OK using KDE window manager. As a work-around you could install and use that.

Re: shared libraries error, Linux Mint 17

The missing librarie-file is placed here:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgomp.so.1
That is the 64-bit version. You need to install lib32gomp1.

There may be more libraries needed too, installing Medusa on any modern Linux is always like this :-(

Re: Snap to grid

Have you checked how close the original location was to the grid? And taken into account that computer representation of "real" numbers is subject to subtle error? CIS Medusa used to have three levels of accuracy of locations, requiring more storage space as accuracy increased. That was when discs w...

Re: Snap to grid

First make sure that grid snapping is turned on - Grid -> Activate Then after picking up the object(s) to be moved (an Auto Probe on any end point will probably do it), use the Grid Probe to drop it. That's the third one down in the vertical menu of probe types. You may need to zoom in a bit for thi...
