Draftsight on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit

DraftSight is a free professional 2D CAD (computer-aided design or computer-aided drafting) product for engineers, architects, designers, draftspeople, students, etc...
As we know, we never had software (in Linux) which can Create, Open and View AutoCAD (*.dwg) before, but try this, this is an answer for engineering who appreciate of using OpenSource software or run all kind of Linux Operating system in their desktop This software is provided, in a beta version, for 32 bit architecture.
Do you have a 64 bit Operating system? No problem: following 3 steps we can install it on a 64 bit machine.

1.Install the two missing dependencies: 

sudo apt-get install libdirectfb extra libxcb-render-util0 

2. Download .deb installation package and move your DraftSight.deb file to your home folder /home/yourusernamehere.

3.Then you have to force install the DraftSight package:

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture DraftSight.deb 

If dosn't work, after you install all dependencies mentioned above (that is libdirectfb-extra, libxcb-render-util0, libaudio2) you should install Draftsight using the following command:

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture,depends ./DraftSight.deb 

E voilà!

Enjoy it!!
