I've installed pcb-20080202 on Open SuSE 10.3
The component libs are in /usr/local/share/pcb (newlib and pcb-newlib). However the "library" window in pcb shows nothing. What should I do to access the component libraries from pcb?
Still a newer newby than you - but just worked around that one (on Mandriva Linux, but should be similar on Suse):
My home directory is at /home/harms, I created a link (as super user)
ln -s /usr/local/share ../share
That also settles the problem of the default font. I am sure there must be a more elegant way to directly configure that
