Hi,

I have asked questions about PCB's import feature before.  I have
followed the postings on this matter by Colin D Bennett and DJ Delorie
of Oct. 23-24, 2012.  I took a good look at the documentation here:

http://pcb.geda-project.org/pcb-cvs/pcb.html#Import-Action

I want to import two gschem pages.  The import feature kind of works on
my system (stock gEDA from the 64-bit Ubuntu 12.10 repos) when I invoke
the 'ImportGUI(gnetlist)' command; it prompts me for the first file,
which I select, but then it gives me a bunch of warnings that it could
not find footprints and could not change symbols.  I did create a
'pcb.settings' file in the same directory where the gschem files reside
(from where I invoke) with the line 'lib-newlib = ./packages' (a soft
link to my custom footprint directory, which has been declared in the
project file and 'gnetlist' finds without a problem), per Colin's
posting, but that did not help.  Before opening the file with pcb, I
even inserted two lines with the editor

Attribute("import::src0" "Path to first file")
Attribute("import::src1" "Path to second file")

but when I opened the file with pcb, I got warnings about illegal files.  I just want to use Import[GUI]() with the gnetlist option.  I see no import GUI either.   What am I missing?  I think an example of Import[GUI]() use would be very helpful.
