    Question Re: What's a good opensource free program for drawing and creating electronic schemat

    Eagle is in the repos, so it's a snap to install with Synaptic.

    I don't know man.? , I believe one of us must be mistaken..

    I don't see Eagle in synaptic.... ..

    You probably don't have the right repo's enabled. Eagle is in multiverse. Enable that and there it is.

    To do it in Synaptic, go Settings/Repositories. Go down the list and enable (I think this is the right one) Non-free (Multiverse). Close that dialog box and hit the Reload button in the upper left. Then search for Eagle.

    Sounds like you need to install build-essential. Back to Synaptic again. Build-essential really should be in the standard install, IMHO.

    wow, I just tried eagle, thats freaking awsome. At least compared to the others Ive tried in linux. I wish they had a simulation package with it. I saw that they have B2 spice which works with eagle but it costs and only has a windows and mac installer.
    Something with an oscilloscope which gave accurate results would be fantastic.

    It's a great program.

    My crappy old web-site (desperately in need of a rebuild) at http://ghmicro.com has a couple of my little projects with Eagle files if you're interested. Go to Projects and look at "MAX7219 LED Display" and "PIC16F628 Board". The LED Display board page has fairly decent pictures of the whole prototyping/design/build process.

    The LED display is a homemade double side board, so the layout has to be VERY carefully planned for absolute minimum number of top-side pads. All top-side components have to be mounted way high to allow soldering iron access underneath them to the top pads, and you still melt things!

    I don't know. Quite likely it will.
