I am still pretty new to Kicad and require some help setting up.
I have just done a fresh install of Kicad 5 and everything was successfully installed and I even drew out a schematic of a couple projects that went pretty well.
The issue I am facing is when I try to associate footprints with the schematic symbols in CVPCB. On Kicad 4 all of the inbuilt footprints used to show up and was pretty straightforward in terms of pairing symbols and footprints.
Majority of the inbuilt libraries are missing, maybe just the THT and SMD caps are showing up, but the rest is just empty. Below are some screenshots showing the issue:
CVPCB showing the resistor_THT without any footprints.
Not sure if I have to add or change anything here, these were defaults under Preference>Configure Paths:
The same goes for Preferences>Manage Footprint Libraries, these were all there by default:
Below is a screen shot of where the .pretty folders were installed by default:
I am looking for any advise or help as to how to solve this issue, I cannot move on with my projects without figuring this out.
Appreciate any help on this matter.
