Install SweetHome3D on Arch
On Arch Sweet Home 3D does not seem to work when installing from AUR so it is required to use the official installer.
Download the official installer from here http://www.sweethome3d.com/download.jsp Extract and move the extracted folder to your desired location for me it is [c]/opt/SweetHome3D[/c] To create a start menu Launcher follow these steps
sudo nano ~/.local/share/applications/sweethome3d.desktop
Paste the following texts.
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Sweet Home 3D 5.7 GenericName=Interior 2D design application with 3D preview GenericName[de]=Innenraumplaner Comment=Interior design Java application for quickly choosing and placing furniture on a house 2D plan drawn by the end-user with a 3D preview Exec=/opt/SweetHome3D/SweetHome3D-Java3D-1_5_2 Icon=/opt/SweetHome3D/SweetHome3DIcon.png StartupNotify=true StartupWMClass=com-eteks-sweethome3d-SweetHome3D Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Graphics;2DGraphics;3DGraphics; Keywords=interior;design;2D;3D;home;house;furniture;java;
Now SweetHome3D should run just fine.
