This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

KiCad consists of the following components: Eeschema - editor of electrical circuits; Pcbnew - editor of printed circuit boards (include another view of volumetric images of printed circuit boards); Gerbview - view photomasks; Cvpcb - choice of seats for the components used on the diagram.

Work in KiCad is performed through a graphical interface. You drag the workspace necessary elements, add the links between them, make captions. On the website of the programme you can download the documentation, but unfortunately, it is in English.
