Re: gEDA-user: Reacquainting to geda and pcb

   So you should have a .fp text file in a library for each footprint used
   in a design?
   If that's the case what are all the components in the pcb designer
   library and how are they used (not being wise, just wondering)?

     Generally use the file name, .fp can be missing.
     So 1206 or 1206.fp may be fine -- I use 1206.
     Of course these files should be in your library.
     You may consider doing DJ fine tutorial and maybe the wiki/wilson
     tutorial too.
