Open Synaptic.

Do a search for freecad. (The search button is top right)

Click the freecad box.

Click on Apply.

Thanks, but the freecad is not listed there which means I am still back to square 1. ???????

Thanks, I have allready that page, and it is a warning there, one should use synaptic to install. How can I use synaptic to install it when it is not listed ?

What does your sources list say?

This seems like an absolute beginner that doesn't even know yet that Synaptic can display the sources. Let's be nice and ask the OP to show the output of "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" in a terminal. Don't include the quote marks in the command.

It appears you were not connected to the internet when you installed which is why your sources only show DVD1. Time to start reading some documentation and learning how to use Debian. The wiki is your friend.
Easiest way - If you have access to the internet, go to https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList#Exa ... urces.list and copy/paste the example (include the contrib and non-free section as you may need that eventually) into your sources.list and you will be able to install all packages from online sources.
If you don't have internet and really need to install packages from DVD2 or 3, you will have to add those to your sources.list. There should have been a section during installation which would have asked you to add those but obviously you didn't. Again, the wiki is your friend to find out how to do that now.
