Google for "geda". They have packaged a number of programs such as ngspice.

here are 3 programs which i have found to be of some use:

if you are looking for digital logic, try logisim:
http://ozark.hendrix.edu/~burch/logisim/
the best logic simulator ive ever used. contains logic primitives like gates, and libraries with logical structures such as multiplexers, adders, registers etc..

for circuits in general, there is ktechlab, though there is still a lot of work to be done:
http://ktechlab.org/
you can even program PIC microcontrollers and integrate them into your simulated circuits.


on another note, if you need a PICmicro IDE, use PiKdev:
http://pikdev.free.fr/
great program, does everything you could possibly want, and can utilise a number of different programmers(even the velleman k8048).
if your programmer isnt in there, you can create your own definition by defining the port, and what pins are used to program the PIC.

hello;

Thanks for you'r Attention .
I installed Ktechlab but here is a problem ,we have just one kind of diode and some software like Orcad has all diode kinds .

thanks

Try LTSpice (http://www.linear.com/designtools/software/). It is not Linux-native but runs pretty well under Wine.

I have been tried Oregano But i have A problem with it .

1) it does not have Current test clamp .means it's disabled .just has voltage test clamp.

Thanks but also this does not have a complete LIB and it's lib is not complete just have one diode one transistor & ... .(like oregano & ktechlab ).

and how can i find it's current & voltage test clampS .

Thanks

yo there!!!

Are you sure??~!!
Well, perhaps it depends in the way you setup your program, if you have rpm based distro try updating your yum, urpmi or aptget (not rpm but like that=)) I used to install from the source and add the dependencies as needed, try qucs installing all the dependencies. It wont dissapoint you!!!
greetings.
Alex

Sorry for the delay

I check your pic it seems to be the same version but its strange to see its disabled. Check your .conf file or set up from scratch (I mean a zero configuration not install)

Sorry to be fool but if you arent to used to oregano try qucs.

The version its 0.60

Im starting the installation again with the
#> darcs get http://www.gazer.com.ar/repos/oregano-stable/

command

I wonder if this is a bug?=(

Well . sorry for the delay Im kinda sick (a club sandwich , uaq...)

Well folk lets see again!!!

Thanks for you'r attentions .
I got oregano package from debian and installed also i don't have current test clamp .
When i want to install form source this error appear:
Code:
debian:~/oregano-stable# scons install PREFIX=/usr/local/lib
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
   Checking for pkg gtk+-2.0 >= 2.10.0 ...                      (cached) no
which packages should i install ?

Thanks

Yop there

Hello again brother, Im sorry but im sick at bad, if there is somethim misspelled sorry i have 39 Degress or something like that Im boiling, well lets work at that, I fight a little with oregano but I dunno why cant get enabled the voltage clamp, bug/ or configuration related, I dont know.
Well so I try in qucs and run smootly, As far as my brain dont burn all the neurons (jeje just kidding) you want a table with values ranging for 0.25 V to 1.5 V? well in qucs just construct the arrange (pretty fast) add the points where you want to work, and simulating, right now, I write this with so much pain and cant give so much detail about that, so Im atacching a qucs file where its showed what I think you want , there is a node named a in that Im adding the clamp, if not right there you can change to the exit or where you have to, the diode characteristics are showed it and to change you have to doubleclick the diode itself, I dont know how to setup a variable voltaje tru the diode but you can test it at the levels you want. once you are done in the voltaje, press the gear button and you get a table and the values the you can copy and make your desired values, after that you can graph this in any spreadsheet you have.
By the way, youll be very kind if you can translate me what it says in Arabic in the pic you related to me. Im afraid I cant understan it.
Im curious about that, because I have never talk to a friend from these beautiful lands. Im glad so I hope you can think of me as friend.
If you dont understand so much write me down again and Ill try to spell again, no problem.

PD.1 the problem in oregano its you dont have the gtk+-2.0 >= 2.10.0 libraries or you have one below 2.0, you have to download the libs from source, or if you have apt-get
try apt-get: gtk-2.0

if you want to try qucs make as su:
apt-get qucs.

PD.2 I dont know this board does not allow attacha file so here is the files
http://rapidshare.com/files/124510626/test2.sch.html

Take care , my good friend.
And look what you eat , I eat a club sandwhich and Im at the hospital,,,
See ya.
