Re: gEDA-user: pcb+gl

   I'm getting this problem when trying to run the last command:
   thomas@thinkpadone:~/pcb2$ git checkout -b pcb+gl_experimental
   fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
   Any ideas?

     In git HEAD, there is "some" GL support. What I've always called
     "pcb+gl" is a feature branch I've been maintaining separately from
     main PCB git repository.
     The aim is to merge it all to upstream git HEAD eventually!.
     To get the most speed and fancyness (including the more translucent
     thin-draw polygons), check out PCB from here:
     git clone git://[2]repo.or.cz/geda-pcb/pcjc2.git
     git checkout -b pcb+gl_experimental origin/pcb+gl_experimental
     (If your card can cope with it, the "pcb+gl_experimental" branch has
     better rendering speed and a few extra bits and pieces).
     Otherwise, the default checkout should be the "pcb+gl" branch.
     As others have said, just run ./configure and GL should be enabled
     the default. You might need to install your distro's libgtkglext-dev
     package before it will build.
