Kicad 4.0.1-3 (6198) on Ubuntu 14.04.1 from the PPA
trying to add a component in pcbnew and the footprint browser gives:
Errors were encountered loading footprints
IO_ERROR: http GET command failed
Cannot get/download Zip archive: ‘https://codeload.github.com/KiCad/Crystals_Oscillators_SMD.pretty/zip/master’
for library path: ‘https://github.com/KiCad/Crystals_Oscillators_SMD.pretty’.
Reason: ‘Not found’
from /build/kicad-zrsXpt/kicad-4.0.1/kicad/pcbnew/github/github_plugin.cpp : remote_get_zip() : line 584
Looking in library manager I have KIGITHUB = https://github.com/KiCad
is that reference to “codeload” right??
perhaps for the same reason, CvPcb completely hangs and never recovers (windows greyed out) when trying to open it?
