Cvpcb - Disable github and use only local library


#1

Hello,

i’m new to Kicad and have a problem with Cvpcb.
When i start it for the first time in a session, it freezes for about 5min and than tells me, that it couldn’t fetch some github repos. This is very annoying.

How can i disable the online library and use only the local ones?

Yes, it seems the problem is fixed by now. But downloading the libs was a pain in the …
The github implementation is totally broken in kicad.
