IMHO, Education repository is a better place, because it already has such CAD programs as QCad, CADEMIA, HeeksCAD...

Education is about the worst place to put it, because there is so much software that, in one way or another, can be useful in and for one's education. In other words, "Education" is too coarse a label. And there is far too much software that clearly /is not/ education-related in the Education project.

I installed the package from graphics and is packaged only the binary but the font and pattern files are needed and not present.
One desktop file would be nice.

you can get a librecad.desktop (and more info about fonts & patterns)

Part of the problem is also that there is no `make install` provided in librecad. gnaaaa...

At the end of make process is executed "scripts/postprocess-unix.sh", this shell script is responsible to realize the installation but in the build tree.
patching the line 4

the install is realized in the build process

LibreCAD 1.0 is now released.
and the rpm packages on the website seem to work great!

Shipping LibreCAD is not possible ATM due to conflicting licenses between LibreCAD (GPL-2.0) and one of its dependencies, fparser (LGPL-3.0).

Cleared up with new version, proceeding.
