Hello, I need some help adding a part from Ultra Librarian.
I added the part’s symbol.lb in Eeschema->Symbol Libraries-> Global Libraries
I placed the part in my schematic.
I open PCBnew and when to Preferences>Manage Footprint Libraries and added the directory of the pretty file.
I tried to follow the instructions on
I have closed everything and then re-opened my schematic that has the new part. I then re-created my Netlist and then launched PCBnew. When I read the Netlist in PCBnew I get the message:
Info: Reading netlist file “F:\myKiCad\project_led_resistor_OR\NetList\project_led_resistor_OR_TSW.net”.
Info: Using time stamps to match components and footprints.

Error: J2 footprint “TSW-105-07-G-D” not found in any libraries in the footprint library table.
Error: Cannot add new symbol J2 due to missing footprint TSW-105-07-G-D.
I am able to place the footprint for the J2 part on the PCBnew board so I don’t understand the problem.
I see the symbol in Eeschema, I can manually add the TSW part in PCBnew, but it won’t let me bring in the part through read Netlist.
Anyone know if the instruction on import Ultra Lib parts has been updated for KiCad 5.1.5?
