QCAD Notes

I don't have a clue how to use QCAD in any meaningful way, but QCAD runs on my Trinity system. I built QCAD against Qt 3.3.8.b. I built QCAD in KDE3 and not in Trinity. Because Qt 3.3.8.d and TQt3 are built and installed separately, I have no problems launching QCAD from within Trinity.

The dialogs in QCAD suck, just like LibreOffice. Stupid generic Qt3 dialogs. :-)

I'm curious how much patching is required to build QCAD with TQt3. I hope to tinker with that eventually. I don't know how to force building QCAD (or any generic Qt3 app) to use the TDE Integration Module to use Trinity dialogs.
