Due to my lack of knowledge of open source EDA tools I used EAGLE from CadSoft 
( It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows and you can use 
the freeware version to view and edit the schematic and the layout.

I'd like to switch to OS EDA software for future projects. KiCAD is already 
installed, I just did not have enough time to play with it yet.

No, everything is included in the two files.
