VCarve Pro on Linux

VCarve Pro on Linux

Postby wvjworley » Thu Apr 27, 2017 3:22 pm

Hoping some Linux guru can help me here.
My hard drive crashed on my laptop so after installing the new one I thought I'd dispense with Windows and go with Linux.
I have installed Linux Mint, Installed Wine, Installed Vcarve Pro 8.517.
VCarve seems to run fine except for one thing. When I drag and drop 3d clip art into the workspace it doesn't show up. The modeling tab says its there. I can edit the model but it doesn't show in the 2d or 3d view. The strange part is that I can load a file that was created under my old windows system and it works and appears just fine.

Any idea why it doesn't work with Linux created files?

Thanks in advance....

Actually it works perfectly if I load a previously created file. Just doesn't work right with a Linux environment file. Thats what weird....
