i have been away from kicad for about a month or so… ubuntu update it for me.
now i have:
Version: 5.1.0-unknown-ead5bfe~82~ubuntu18.04.1, release build
wxWidgets 3.0.4 Unicode and Boost 1.65.1
Platform: Linux 4.15.0-47-generic x86_64
I’m doing thoses steps:
- Open project
- Press A, select a symbol
- Move and left click to place it
- press ESC to go back to select tool
- left click any place on worksheet, opens “choose symbol” windows
seems to no matter the shortcut (M, G…) if i left click, it pops off the symbol selection…
i can’t work it’s possible to force a downgrade or something like that?
It seems you run nightly builds. There seems to be a bug in it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1825204
A fix has been committed so it will appear for you sometime tonight.
With KiCad & Ubuntu you should be able to switch between the nightlies and the stable V5.1 by:
1). Uninstall KiCad.
2). Change repositories.
3). Install KiCad again.
More info of course on the KiCad site itself:
With ubuntu one can run nightly and stable in parallel. One is installed as kicad-nightly and one as just kicad. (They get different system directories, different config directories and have a different name in the packet manager.)
