I am trying to use Kicad Plugins(Interactive BOM,Tear Drop) in my PC running in Ubuntu.
I try to paste the Plugins in “/usr/share/kicad/Plugins” folder.But I am not able to paste there.
Could you please help me how to use Plugins in Ubuntu
I’m on Debian. Mine are here:
In my system the path is like this “/usr/share/kicad/scripting”.
I am not able to paste the “.py” files in that location.
What Hermit try to tell you is that you should put the plugins in the home folder (/home/name/) and not in the folder where kicad is installed (/usr/share/), if you put them there or change the libraries from that folder, the next time that you updgrade kicad, those changes will be lost.
I went to the folder “home/hari/.config/kicad”.But I am not able to see scripting folder there.
Please see the attached image.
Just create it yourself.
I created the folder and paste the interactive bom plugin there.(“init.py”).But no use.
You need to put the whole InteractiveHtmlBom folder there, not just the init file.
Now it is working.
Thank you very much.
