New to simulation and PCB software. I'm trying to setup gEDA's PCB. I can't seem to figure out the proper syntax for telling the program to use a particular directory to find symbols that I might add.
I'm using the tutorial here:
as well as here:
Instead of wanting to create a link or directory for each separate project, I want to create one directory to house all my added symbols (won't be many). I created ~/gaf/symbols for that purpose, then go into Preferences, select "Library", then type in "~/gaf/symbols".
When I return to the project and open up Window/Library, I find my directory and the symbol files. But when I click on either of the two symbols in there the program abruptly exits.
The two symbols I have in that directory came with the tutorial, so I doubt there is a problem with them.
Contents of both ~/gaf/gafrc and ~/gaf/gschemrc:
It's frustrating that a simple configuration problem/mistake like this would cause the program to crash!
Any insight as to how to properly set this up would be greatly appreciated. I'm running Debian Wheezy 3.2 kernel with latest updates, PCB version 20110918.
