Following your suggestion, Terminal result:
is@luis-G41M-Combo:~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove qt-ap-spi

E: Unable to locate package qt-ap-spi

I look everywhere for qt-ap-spi
 but cant find it.
This come about from Thread #257100 which I never had a answer, I was advised to upgrade to Librecad 2.0.6. I did this but the gremlin continued, then was advised to
sudo apt-get --purge remove qt-ap-spi
. After I tried on Terminal “librecad” the result was this:
 Open Terminal enter “librecad” it open with error in terminal but I carry on on saving file it close again sending result of Terminal it might help.
 luis@luis-G41M-Combo:~$ librecad

I hope this will help
Please can you help to fix this.

I cannot find any information about an Ubuntu package "qt-ap-spi". Maybe this is a typo error and should read "qt-at-spi"?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #4

In the instructions is to remove qt-at-spi not the inexistent qt-ap-spi.


sudo apt-get purge qt-at-spi
