When searching for a footprint f.i. during footprint association on eeschema, and I have started the software recently Kicad correctly complains about libraries not existing at the location as below. Because the libraries aren#t there.
I have located my libraries in the following folders as specified in “Preferences/Path Configuration”
Interestingly the path variables get set immediately after I click “OK”, (just a click - nothing else) in the above window,. i.e. the error message as shown on top does not appear and Kicad finds the libraries as specified in preferences.
I’ve spend hours trying to find the trick to make Kicad start using the customized directories from the get go to no avail. Can somebody enlighten me.
