Lubuntu 20.04 LTS, KiCAD 5.1.6
I’d like to add or modify symbols in the Libraries, but am faced with the problem that saving changes isn’t possible.
On inspection, this seems to be due to the Libraries being owned by root:root with rights rw-r–r--
As a normal user, I’m not allowed to save my changes then.
Creating a local library with just my user-defined parts doesn’t work, KiCad doesn’t find the library.
I see two options:
1: make a local (and user owned) copy of the Libraries and use those as default. I have bad experiences with doing this, as KiCAD always insists on using its own paths instead of user-defined ones.
2: change the Library access rights to root:root rw-rw-rw (using chmod), this would then allow all users to change the Library.
Is there a third way? Or which solution would you recommend?
