Any Ubuntu 16.10 or 17.04 users?


#1

I just want to know if 4.0.6 or Nightly is currently working OK on these releases. There was a wxPython version problem with 16.10 at one point.


#2

4.0.6 works ok for me on 16.10.


#3

4.0.6 works fine for me on 17.04


#4

I wasn’t expecting this, the “bleeding edge” distribution users, with the stable but now old KiCad.
No Nightly users, the PPA shows successful builds, but that doesn’t guarantee it all works


#5

This seems to be related to that issue


#6

I doubt that this is the same bug. Please raise this one as a bug on Launchpad.
18.04 is causing many problems and attempts to work round them can cause others.


#7

That’s what I thought at first.

@KarlZeilhofer appears to be knowledgeable to build his own nightlies, so it might just be related in some weird way.


#8

I’m not sure, where that error, posted at AppImage on Github, came from. That’s why I dind’t post in the bugtracker for KiCad.
As mentioned on Github, I “reconfigured” to use ubuntu xenial, and then it worked again. Currently I’m not building KiCad from source, since I’m happy with the AppImage, which is built from the PPA.


#9

Anyway, this thread was about a 16.10 and 17.04 issue and both of these are out of support and should not be in use.


#10

I have used Kicad 4.0.6~7 up in Bionic, but I do not recommend it, I had problems, with Xenial it works fine.
