Compiling LeoCAD in any GNU/Linux

LeoCAD is a LDraw file editor, a open format to make LEGO(R), TENTE(R), EXIN CASTILLOS(R), etc... virtual models.

I follow this steps to compile Leocad:
  1. Install subversion and the necesary libraries to compile QT code:
    sudo apt-get install git libqt4-dev zlib1g-dev
  2. Download the lastest version of code in a folder, for example $HOME
    cd $HOME
    git clone
  3. Change to this directory, compile and install:
    cd leocad
    sudo make install 
  4. If we use the LEGO library we might launch the software with this command (I suppose you download the library in /opt/ldraw/lego):
    leocad -l /opt/ldraw/lego/
You can also use the Tente® 3D library, then the comand to run might be:
leocad -l /opt/ldraw/tente
If you compile in a raspberry pi, use qmake-qt4 instead of qmake
