Hi Richiem,
sorry to bother you,
I have yesterday installed Crossover/Wine on my iMac, downloaded the LtSpice IV too,
+ it opens a diagram
+ it allows me to make my own schema

but I did run into some significant problems:
- cannot find out how to rotate a component like a zener, that is awkward.
- can't open the help file (LTspiceHelp.chm), the iMac knows nonesuch extension
- can't get data in the components (like set the voltage for a power input), the field will not edit, and I then get a dump (in Dutch):
LT Spice wine error.jpg

Maybe you have some special tricks?
albert

I have downloaded CHMOX, to open LTspiceHelp.chm
This gave me the necessary insight, it is now up & running.
Couldn't take out my post anymore

@ triode_al -- good job on getting up and running. I found that getting to a place where I could actually use LTspice was really painful, since I had never used any Spice program at all. There are still things that can be done that I don't know how to do -- e.g. making a pin label like "+V" that refers to a power source connection, so that you don't have to run supply leads all over the diagram. The help files don't really help with that. And I find importing models confusing and time-consuming, and they often don't work like I want them to. But it works. Poco a poco.

Hi Richiem,
I saw there is a Yahoo group devoted to LT Spice, there must be more info around there, some real developers are supporting it.
But it is not poco a poco, it is a lot of dedicated information at once then
Anyway, you triggered me to this so thanks!
albert
