Greetings all;

The librecad in the debian repos for wheezy is nearly a decade old,
v-1.02. There are V2-* stuff that still runs on QT4 some of which is
already installed.

Is there a repo where I can source a newer version than 1.02 without
destroying my system?

1.02 is so old the u-tube tuts are nearly worthless, yet it shows promise
of being able to lay out a boxes rear panel with 13 connections thru it.
which is what I am trying to do.

Or is there an even better 2d app for such?

Thanks everybody.
Hai Gene,

Some time ago I tried LibreCAD as well and soon had to conclude there were too
many issues with it to proceed. Meanwhile I've adopted QCAD (the Pro version)
and I am quite happy with it. I've been drawing some fairly complex stuff with
it (industrial machinery) and have been able to do almost everything I needed it
to do. Mind you it is 2D only, but as far as I can remember the same was true of
LibreCAD.

I think it might not satisfy the DFSG, as there are proprietary modules in it,
but most of the code is licensed under GPLv3.

You might want to look into DraftSight, a clone of AutoCad. Not free. Main drawback: it does not (or did not--haven't looked at it in a while) recognize whole word instructions, only the abbreviations of AutoCad 11, and probably later editions. I used a lite version of AutoCad at work, since I am not primarily a PCB designer, and I never learned the abbreviations. (Now retired for 16 years.) It runs
on Linux--I have an RPM system.
