What works

Installation is straightforward. Seems like everything works very
well. Better performance than the native Linux one at same version.
Plotting to PDF works. 3D modelling works. A little lag in panning and
zooming, but very usable nonetheless.

Better performance if you change some settings (using SETTINGS command):

2D graphics system device: OpenGL;
3D graphics system device: OpenGL;
Quad display: off;
Hotkey assistant: off;
Real-time display: display outlines only;
Selection preview effect: dashed line;

And for the panels:

Pannel stacking: dockable stack with tabs;

For dark mode, it's recommended to apply a dark theme to wine by editing your user.reg file located in .local/share/wineprefixes/~yourwineprefix~/user.reg . This one works quite well.

What does not

When using the "PUBLISH" command, the "Publish in background" option freezes Bricscad. Just deselect it and "PUBLISH" works as intended.


Install corefonts in your wine prefix, otherwise you will get strange glitches in some interface components.
