          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 to:
          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!
