How to Install Open CASCADE for FreeCAD in Ubuntu?
FreeCAD 0.13 rev 5058
I have a problem with FreeCAD which I am told OpenCASCADE will fix. (If OpenCASCADE takes care of the problem, why isn't it part of the FreeCAD package? How can OpenCASCADE take care of the problem if it isn't already part of FreeCAD?)
So far I have downloaded and opened ver 6.5.2, but have no idea where to put it. I have found help which tells me to ./configure for several programs, none of which I've heard of before, and some of which I don't have but can't find in Synaptic to install.
It seems like some of these program names actually have new names which would be obvious to anyone familiar with them. Of course I'm not familiar with them so I'm having problems. There's also the problem of where these packages are 'installed". They typically have portions installed in three to six directories, so which one do you pick?
Are there any complete descriptions of how to install OpenCASCADE for FreeCAD in Ubuntu?
