Eagle Cad Ubuntu
Install Eagle Ubuntu Linux – One of the most popular PCB design applications today is Eagle. Using Linux as the OS in the development of microcontroller electronic devices is the right choice for me.
This article is based on my experience that several times failed to install Eagle linux.
To be able to do the installation, we must first download the installation package by using the following download button:
After the download is complete, open Terminal and go to your Download folder using command.
We will extract it using command:
tar -xf Autodesk_EAGLE_9.6.2_English_Linux_64bit
Now we will move the extracted Eagle folder into the /opt/folder, use the following command:
sudo mv eagle-9.6.2 /opt/
Then we go into the eagle folder which is in the /opt folder.
Now install “./eagle” in terminal:
If you getting error like:
./eagle: symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGLX_mesa.so.0: undefined symbol: xcb_dri3_get_supported_modifiers
Move to the directory …/eagle-9.6.2/lib and Run the command rm libxcb*;
cd lib rm libxcb*
Now, back to folder “eagle-9.6.2” and Launch Eagle using command ./eagle.
cd .. ./eagle
You will sea a loading app is appear like this:
Make Desktop Launcher Icon
To be able to make shortcuts appear in the menu, an application is needed to create app shortcuts.
One of the menu editor applications is Alacarte. Please open a terminal, then use the following command:
sudo apt-get install alacarte
How to Add Shortcuts To Menu
Look at the picture above.
- Click New Item
- Enter the name of the application in the Name form
- Navigate the application to the folder where the application is located by clicking Browse
- Insert the application icon by clicking the icon form on the left
- Click OK
Now the shortcut app is in the Main Menu.
