I have a footprint-problem, too.
I have replaced the fp-lib-table with the fp-lib-table.for-github, as written here, but that did not help.
Here is the Error Message:
Error loading netlist.
IO_ERROR: http GET command failed
Cannot get/download Zip archive: 'https://codeload.github.com/KiCad/Transformers_SMPS_ThroughHole.pretty/zip/master'
for library path 'https://github.com/KiCad/Transformers_SMPS_ThroughHole.prety.
Reason: 'End of file'
from /build/kicad-WeUYPs/kicad-4.0.0/kicad/pcbnew/github/github_plugin.cpp:remote_get_zip():line 584
I am totaly new to kicad, this is my first try to "design" something with kicad, so I do know nothing about the principles behind all that "magic" thats going on in kicad.
Could someone please tell me, what the reason of this error is and how to avoid it?
Thanx in advance
