Quote:
XCircuit is a UNIX/X11 (and now Windows, if you have an X-Server running) program for drawing publishable-quality electrical circuit schematic diagrams and related figures, and produce circuit netlists through schematic capture. XCircuit regards circuits as inherently hierarchical, and writes both hierarchical PostScript output and hierarchical SPICE netlists. Circuit components are saved in and retrieved from libraries which are fully editable. XCircuit does not separate artistic expression from circuit drawing; it maintains flexiblity in style without compromising the power of schematic capture.


http://opencircuitdesign.com/xcircuit/

This is the latest development release of xcircuit.

To run, Menu->Graphic->xcircuit, or just type xcircuit in a console.

N.B.: For newer versions of puppy, this program needs tcl & tk libraries to be installed. If you want the tutorial, it needs dillo as the browser.

To run the tutorial, either click on /usr/share/xcircuit/tutorial, or enter /usr/share/xcircuit/tutorial

Wow! Thanks for this!

I will have to poke around in there and see if it will allow me to design
using tubes (valves for the Aussies, Brits, & Kiwis).

I've uploaded the latest development version of xcircuit. As the previous one was v3.6.111, there have been quite a few bugfixes. It still contains the self-extracting tutorial, which you can open, using dillo, by clicking on /usr/share/xcircuit/tutorial.

I'll try that sometime. I started teaching my young daughters some simple electronics a while ago, so that could be handy. I take it I could try out the circuit operation by running the output through SPICE then?

mcewanw,

Well, actually, being a theoretical electronics boffin, I haven't used xcircuit myself. But I'm glad you posted your query as I had another <australian-slang>dekko</australian-slang> at the tutorial that I had included, and realised I'd missed some content.

So I've removed it from the original .pet & added it as a separate download.

Thanks for sharing that with us, there are times that I like to draw up something I've either made or want to make but didn't have any small software program to do it. I downloaded it to use with my Puppy. Looking forward to using it this Winter when the snow is deep and the temps are low. Now if we just had some way to convert it to a pc board template for etching.

Sub_title: XCircuit for Puppy 4.2
 

Thanks Muggins for XCircuit.

I am a fairly new user of Puppy Linux and am using XCircuit on older Puppy release 3.01, but am curious if anyone has compiled XCircuit for current release of Puppy version 4.2. Or a simple tutorial on how to make a XCircuit Pet for the current release.

XCircuit is the smallest, fastest, easiest to use schematic diagram program I have used to date. And works well with Puppy Linux on a portable USB pendrive. Am using XCircuit to document my nearly 40 year collection of hand sketched, mostly analog discrete circuits.

Hi I just repackaged the latest compiled rpm version, you'll need tcl/tk installed to use it, You can get that from the repo.
Works fine on 4.2 without adding tcl/tk because its already included but from verson 4-4.1.13 you'll have to add it, there are also version you can fin in this forum. anyways here's the pet

I also made a menu listing in documents, wasn't sure where to put that, graphics, documents etc.
anyways ejoy and you can read up on it at the homepage

Sub_title: XCircuit working on Puppy 4.2v2
 

Thanks Thanks Thanks ttuuxxx for the super fast response and XCircuit pet for Puppy 4.2 !!!

I installed the XCircuit pet you created in Puppy 4.2v2 and have it working !!!

Will be doing detailed testing next few days.

I am really impressed !!!

Sub_title: XCircuit, Puppy 4.2v2, InkScape 0.46
 

Thanks muggins for XCircuit 3.6.145 update !!!

Testing XCircuit 3.6.145 development release update you posted today and notice that the capability to selectively color symbols and any portions of circuits now works great with Puppy Linux 4.2v2 on portable bootable USB flash drive.

Also want to note that clicking on the .PS file in Puppy brings up the XCircuit created file for viewing, including color, then saving copy as .PDF file allows it to be opened in InkScape 0.46 (posted in another Puppy forum) and it can be edited and scaled detailed to symbols, lines and colors and integrated with documents, photographs and other material.

XCircuit and InkScape are great companion programs on Puppy Linux for creating high quality schematic diagrams, documentation, designing precision meter faces, dials, front panels, component layouts etc...

Thanks again muggins, ttuuxxx and the Puppy team !!!
