Hi,

I emerged FreeCAD from the science-overlay. Emerge went fine. But I can't start it. All I get is:

Code:

 ~ $ FreeCAD
FreeCAD 0.9, Libs: 0.9R2646

Could not load a transcoding service


(A side note: FreeCAD is not shown in my KDE4-Kickoff - but that doesn't bother me.)

I read something about a file called "freecad.cfg" which should be in the bin path but I searched my system and I don't have such a file. But I think that file would be created automatically when FreeCAD started the first time successfully?

What do I do wrong?

Greetings from Nuremberg,
Andy

Hi,

you've got to add icu and curl to xerces-c configuration
Code:

echo "dev-libs/xerces-c               icu curl" >> /etc/portage/package.use


that worked for me.
