Bricsys has chosen to support Fedora, OpenSuse and Ubuntu. For the distribution versions being supported in BricsCAD (Linux), we follow the official support periods as offered by the creators of Fedora / OpenSuse / Ubuntu.
BricsCAD (Linux) is built on the oldest Ubuntu LTS that is supported for the desktop. For instance, at time of writing (2012/04), Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is the oldest Ubuntu LTS that is still supported for the desktop. In practice, BricsCAD (Linux) can run on almost any distribution that is newer than Ubuntu 10.04.
We receive many support requests for other versions or other distributions. As a rule of thumb, if we can reproduce the reported issue in one of the supported distribution versions, we provide support for it.
