Open souce electronics design with Oregano

Linux Journal has posted an article describing the installation and use of Oregano. Oregano is an electrical design and engineering tool for Linux which allows for schematic design and simulation of electronic circuits. The actual simulation is performed by Berkeley Spice, or GNUcap or the new generation ngspice.

Oregano is licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL, and is a work in progress. The dev crew welcomes any assistance in improving the program or adding new features.

    There is a typo in the article link, a ” at the end.

    Interesting, I see an unanswered 16 January 2013 entry in the Github Oregano Issues list about how to use third party model and/or subcircuit files. Not that this may be impossible today – I haven’t tried Oregano personally yet. But over 4 months with nobody addressing this Issue question doesn’t bode well IMHO.

      So, please try it, find a solution and post answer to that ticket – it’s a community project, don’t think “they” do it – we do. And yeah, we as the Open Hardware community is not active enough…

    Oregano apparently has no user guide, or even a How-To-Use tutorial.
    It seems like an interesting front-end for Gnucap or Ngspice, but how
    do we use it?
