So I’m trying to get KiCad working. I setup a resistor and hooked one side to ground the other to VCC.
Then I assigned it a footprint of some random resistor in the netlist screen and saved it.
Next I opened Pcbnew and clocked to open the Netlist I just saved and I get these errors:
Info: Reading netlist file "C:\Projects\Electronics\CNC\KiCad\test\test.net". Info: Using references to match components and footprints. Error: No footprint defined for component 'R1'. Info: Checking netlist component footprint "R1:/57F09B92:". Error: Cannot add new component "R1:/57F09B92" due to missing footprint "".
How do I get past this issue? I got my brother to try KiCad on linux (I’m using windows) to see if its just me, and he gets the same issue.
