Here is a note from a gCADPlus user describing his experience installing gCADPlus.

“.. the installation was very easy with my Linux (this is an Ubuntu version highly customized for beginners … looks cool and works stable) .. I just clicked on the .exe file and I was asked if I would like to install software to run windows applications .. yes, and then wine and your cad where installed all in one step ..”
