    It's still Beta, but is available in the Linux repositories. Also works on Windows according to the developer.

    Tried Fritzing?

    Designed and named to fit in with wiring and processing, lots of goodies for noobies like me.

    Welcome - Fritzing

    A good one, (and free) for schematics and wiring diagrams in fact any type of diagramatic is "yEd" works with Win, LIN, droid and MAC.

    Thanks for the links. I found a few drawing packages that are good at electronics (like those above) but struggled to find anything suitable for drawing machine controls such as isolators, e-stops, contactors, coils, relays, push buttons, etc. There's always the option to use QCAD or LibreCAD and draw your own symbols, but the style of QElectroTech is more like the drawings I use daily at work. A forum search found zero posts, so thought others might benefit from this software, too.
