It’s been a while since last time I used Kicad.
In the meantime, many things have changed, and I have the following problem: Kicad doesn’t find the libraries I was using. Maybe I deleted something…
Now as I was using libraries including elements converted from Eagle, I would like to do a fresh start, and use the standard libraries, kicad-****-master that can be downloaded from the net.
I was using a Conn_02x20 for Raspberry. I found it in the above mentoned libraries, so it looks fine. However, how do I replace it?
There is still a component in the lib, probably, because there is a square with ??, which seems to say that it doesn’t find the lib. The component can be found in the new lib. And I have added a new one to check that I can indeed add a Conn_02x20, but I think I have to delete the previous one first.
If I double click the ??, I get a popup window that shows the object properties, but there is no way to
browse to the new location of the Conn_02x20.
Any hint to solve that?
By the way, I forgot how to add pictures, which would probably be better for explanations. I don’t see any image-like icon in the message editor.
Update: I found out that by double-clicking the ??, there is a field on the left, “Library symbol” with
validate and change under the field. By pressing change, you get a symbol chooser window from which
you can reassign it.Now I have myriads of capacitors and resistors to reassign. Is there a way to do a
