Hi Fabricators in Noisebridge,

I'm working on making fine PCBs with table top CNC Machine right now. I
need a good opensource G-code simulator. Simulation version of LinuxCNC
would be perfect, however, I can't get it running on my 64bit Ubuntu 12.04
Precise, every time I try to run it, There pops up this Error Message
(Attached at the end of this email). I use the LinuxCNC binary here:
http://www.linuxcnc.org/lucid/dists/precise/linuxcnc2.5-sim/binary-amd64/linuxcnc-sim_2.5.0_amd64.deb
.
There are other binaries here
http://www.linuxcnc.org/lucid/dists/precise/linuxcnc2.5-sim/binary-amd64/,
I am not sure which one to choose actually.

I can use a little help on figuring out how to run linuxCNC simulation on
my laptop, or recommendation of another opensource/freeware gcode
simulator. I'm aware of trial version of Mach3, CNC simulator, and GWizard.
I just don't want use eagle-like close sourced software. Thanks folks!
