Freerouting plugin v8_0

After install of freerouting plugin it cannot be found in the usual place. The install location had a script that would copy to /home/ron/.kicad_plugins/kicad-freerouting-plugin so I created the dirctory kicad_plugins/ and ran it. It did create the sub /home/ron/.kicad_plugins/kicad-freerouting-plugin and put stuff there but no-joy.

Any solution?


OS please.

Some operating systems are having trouble installing plugins.
Some plugins may not yet be updated to run on Kicad 8.0.0

And info about your Java JRE/JDK version.
Freerouting is written in Java and can be fussy about this.
