Download and install Eagle
Eagle requires a 32-bit environment which may or may not be installed in linux yet.
I have taken the step to istall the following libraries prior to running the eagle.run file from here
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32z1 lib32z1-de
After this eagle installed without a problem.
Linux alt-click / alt-drag moving the window problem
The newer Linux window managers tend to use the alt-click or alt-drag combinations to move or re-size windows. This prevents us from using that same key in both Blender and Eagle.
tip about using alt-grid on ubuntu:
but also look into changing this behavior from the regular window manager. (as it is apparently not a keyboard shortcut...)
For Linux Mint 17, the following trick was used:
Designing circuits with Eagle
- Select New Project
- Select New Schematic
Open library turn off all libraries, right click use none: scroll down to supply enable
- Open library, click Use
- Download from the internet a library or select on in the computer the library that we will be using (e.g.
- SelectAdd, then you can open the library
- (if you don't find your thing you could also click on "Use")
Starting new projects
- File -> New Project
- File -> New Schematic
- File -> Save As (filename.sch)
- Select the things you want to use and click Add to get the components.
- You can select different view by clicking on Board
- You can select object by right clicking them and selecting packning
- Connect objects by clicking Wire and make wire between objects.
- It can be good to make connections and get a sign for Ground and put where it should be GND.
- View Grid select the size of the grid, alternative grid could be around (0,025 inches)
- Move to move object or line.
- Delete to remove object or line and so on.
- Junction Connection point .
- Ratsnest Calculates calculate the airwires so that they show the shortest possible connections.
- You can right click objects and select value to set values e.g. for capacitors or resistors
- Right click on object and select properties to rename.
- You can check out if you have connected the object by moving them.
- ERC Electrical rule check, search for errors.
A tip for arranging objects
- Start with data signals, and do your power signals (GND and VCC the last).
Check the design rules.
- Tools ->DRC -> Load-> Check
- Frame to make frame around the design.
- Arrange objects
- click Auto
- Select Bottom N/A
If it is not as good as you wanted you can select lines, by right clicking them and select rip off
View-> Layer settings ->
- All ->Ok ( to check out if everything is within the board, also the layers that are not visible.
- None ->
and the turn on the layers you want to have.
- File -> Export image
- resolution: 1200 dpi
- Area: Full
- Monochrome: check.

- First project could be to make schematic of this board and to add something to it, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor) to the serial echo hello-world board, check the design rules, and make it
