Electronic programs for LinuxSo you are interested in electronics, well so am I and here are a list of some useful electronic programs for Linux.
This list is by no means complete, it just contains the programs I would like to highlight.
There web-page is way outdated though, there are no Debian packages, and it has an annoying license if you are going to use it commercially, it inherited it from the original spice3f5 license, you have been warned!
Here is a small part of the copyright notice:
Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its documentation for educational, research and non-profit purposes, without fee, and without a written agreement is hereby granted, provided that the above copyright notice, this paragraph and the following three paragraphs appear in all copies.If you are still interested in it here is how I compiled it.
Got the newest source, extracted it "tar -xzvf ng-spice-rework-15c.tar.gz"
./configure --enable-xspice --with-readline --prefix=/usr/share/gEDA/
make install (as root)
./configure will probably tell you that you are missing some libraries go get there -dev versions and you should be fine.
In case you are wondering how I selected the configure options have a look at http://www.brorson.com/gEDA/SPICE/x496.html
Actually the URL http://www.brorson.com/gEDA/ is also quite helpful.
