    gEDA tutorial

    Hi,
    I am running the Bill Wilson gEDA tutorial and I have got to the point where I have entered "pcbboard pcbpcb" and have got the screen "Unnamed (board.pcb) - PCB": I have entered "File - Import schematics" and I have imported one.sch and two.sch.
    The problem is, that in both cases I get only part of the items on screen - some are missing.
    I can't figure out what I am missing/doing wrong.
    Can anyone help?
    best regards

    Re: gEDA tutorial

    Hi,
    The tutorial suggested that I gave the two OPAMPS in one.sch the same number U101, therefore they turned up as one. If I give them the numbers U101 and U102, they turn up as two - OK, but it does not tally with the instructions

    The transistor does not turn up in two.sch and the log gives:

    File 'board.pcb' has no font information, using default font

    '/usr/local/pcb-elements'
    chdir() returned: 'No such file or directory'

    I think that I have loaded footprint CONNECTOR 2 1 as instructed in the tutorial correctly, so what is wrong?
