Thanks a lot Matt. I am also a Protel user, so I will probably have a
couple of questions once I get started!

I will tatlk to you after work (for some odd reasons I have not been
able to connect to the IRC, still hacking though :) ) on the IRC.

Cheers to all,

  I have spent the evening learning Eagle.  I can now say with confidence
that I am a converted Protel user at this point.  I am quite impressed with
the level of detail you guys have done in the libraries and schematics and
am getting a bit excited about the power of all of this.  I will detail my
setup in the hopes of passing info forward if it has not already been said.
I normally operate in a Windows XP environment but the amount of linking,
the CVS, etc. makes the environment productive.

  I downloaded the latest copy of Eagle (4.16R2 in this case) and extracted
it to /usr/share/eagle-lin-eng-4.16r2/ and then created a symbolic link at
/usr/share/eagle/  this allows you to work with multiple versions of the
program and you will not break any links pointed to /usr/share/eagle by
updating.  The command to create this link is

# ln -s /usr/share/eagle-lin-eng-416r2/ /usr/share/eagle

  I could then create a basic "launcher" or shortcut on the desktop to point


  I also realized that I wanted to include the CVS paparazzi libraries but I
did not want to copy them as they would grow stale and not be included in
CVS updates so I employed another handy symbolic link.

# ln -s /home/mcurrie/paparazzi3/hw/lbr/

  Paparazzi "CVS" libaries now show up inside a subfolder called paparazzi
in the library list of Eagle.

  I hope this helps someone and again, there is some great work done already
for us!
