Circuit Studio in Wine (Linux)
« on: June 14, 2019, 09:38:52 am »
Just letting you know, Circuit Studio does run in Wine.
I used these instructions for Circuit Maker:
https://circuitmaker.com/blog/3-steps-for-installing-circuitmaker-on-linux

There are some minor graphic bugs, nothing serious. Quite usable.
edit: graphic bug when pressing P-P in schematic editor seems to be in the windows version as well ;) So no graphic bug related to wine

Even the circuit maker student version works on Wine, which is suitable for learning purposes and freeware.

Download link from BR school :P

Update : testing for real on Wine :P

That is MicroCode CircuitMaker, not at all related to Altium Circuitstudio, Altium CircuitMaker or this forum.

Since my first post I have had a couple of the well known Altium crashes - but surprisingly the program continues to run perfectly. This is for example when importing a CircuitMaker pcb file, without having an other PCB file in the project. I don't know if this is a bug in Windows as well...(I could imagine it is)

Could you post some screenshots of CS in WINE? Just curious to see how it looks.
Does the PCB 3D view work?

Thanks for that.
It does look the same, I was expecting some bad looking fonts or such-like.
Good to see CS is usable in WINE, I need to try it.

In order to get the .DXF import working, one needs to install TeighaX as described in this post:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/circuit-studio/create-pcb-outline-from-dxf/

Install TeighaX in the correct wine prefix:
Code: [Select]
WINEPREFIX=/home/xxx/.wine-circuitstudio/ wine msiexec /i /home/xxx/.../TeighaX_Setup_3.9.0.msi
then follow the instructions in the above post.
