Installing gEDA less than 3-minutes

Here's the recipe for instant gEDA in your Linux:
  1. Download gEDA binary suite from here(HTTP) or here(FTP). If those two links don't work anymore, please refer to the gEDA download page: gEDA Binary Suite section

  2. Unzip the file using:
    # tar xvjf gedasuite-linux-x86-0.0.2.tar.bz2

  3. The tarred file will produce gedasuite-linux-x86-<version> directory. Inside the directory, there's a script to install the software:

  4. Run the script and answer the questions:
    # ./

  5. Add the gEDA directory to your path:
    # echo "export PATH=your_geda_installation_dir:$PATH" >> $HOME/.bashrc
That's all folks. Enjoy your geda.
