Xfig is a powerful vector drawing program. I found out that it is an excellent medium to create schematics and block diagrams for direct printing or conversion to different graphic file formats. I started to use Xfig to create non professional schematics for particular purposes. I started with a few devices and completed them as required. That's why simple has not a professional look and it is not intended for professional use. It is just an owned- collection that simply I wish to share it. Note that the names of components are not conventional design names, they are named to appear (more or less) sorted in the Xfig library dialog box.
Simple can be used alone to help you draw schematics and write simple reports, or in conjunction with other Xfig libraries and the excellent document formatting software available for Linux/Unix to produce application notes, reports, datasheets or a complete book for an electronic project.

If you have a previous .rpm package version installed, uninstall it with:
rpm -e simple
If you have installed from a tgz package, delete all directories that start with
the name "simple_" in /usr/X11/lib/X11/xfig/Libraries/
You need to do this cause in this version I renamed/re-scaled several figures.

tgz package:
Expand the tgz package to a temp directory:
tar zxf simple-0.6a.tgz
Move (or copy) the results to:
Note that the tgz package doesn't have the complete path, just the simple_xxxx/ entries.
(File managers like Midnight Commander (mc) can simplify this).

rpm package:
Geocities/Yahoo destroys rpm packages inserting advertising.
If you really need the rpm version download this file (rpm 3) and rename it to simple-0.6-a.i386.rpm
(just rename it, no need to expand) and install it with command:
rpm -i simple-0.6-a.i386.rpm


Tar-Gzip package: simple-0.6a.tgz (351,724 bytes)
