- The stable PPA (Personal Package Archive) for Ubuntu is located here. Qucs 0.0.18 packages are available for Ubuntu versions 14.10 (Utopic) and 14.04 (Trusty). Qucs 0.0.17 packages are available for Ubuntu versions 13.04 (Raring), 12.10 (Quantal), and 12.04 (Precise). To add the package repository and install Qucs, use the following sequence of commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:qucs/qucs sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install qucs
qucs-<version>-setup.exeThe relocations of the package (the location where the package gets installed) is mainly steered by environment variables. During a normal installation the appropriate environment variables are automatically set for the user who installed the package.
One of them must be emphasised: HOME. During installation an appropriate file system location will be found. When it was already set then the previous value is assumed. The location decides where the project, intermediate and configuration files will be saved. So when the user wonders about missing project files or lost configuration it's worth to have a look at the environment variables.
If FreeHDL is meant to be used for digital simulation then also the binary installer package named
freehdl-<version>-setup.exemust be downloaded and installed. It requires the MinGW32 compiler. If it is not already installed, it's possible to install a prepared binary package for this, too.
mingw32-g++-<version>-setup.exeIt contains the minimal MinGW32 installation required to work with FreeHDL and should be installed proir to the FreeHDL package.
If Icarus Verilog is used for digital Verilog-HDL simulation the installer script
iverilog-<version>_setup.exemust be installed on the computer additionally. Please note that it is necessary to install it in a path location without spaces due to a limitation in the software. Current versions can be obtained at http://bleyer.org/icarus/.
In order to use the SPICE preprocessor ps2sp successfully a TinyPerl installation is required. It can be obtained at http://tinyperl.sourceforge.net/. It must be ensured that the tinyperl.exe is accessible via the PATH environment variable.
