[Ubuntu] DraftSight installation

DraftSight installation is not as simple as it seems to be even though it comes with .deb file. The dependencies are not fully resolved, leaving out a few modules required by DraftSight missing. The error message that appeared is:
Failed to load modules
If this happened, simply install the following:
  1. Install this first alone:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
  2. Then install:
    sudo apt-get install libdirectfb-extra libxcb-render-util0
If the above do not solve DraftSight start up issue, then try the method discussed in this helpful article:
