KiCad 8.01 Digital Simulation 74xx doesn't work

Just create a simple simulation with 74hc02. Doesn’t work. Try hours to solve the problem.
No luck.
Now, I check a ‘offical’ example:

Has the same problems:

List of plots available:
Current const	Constant values (constants)
Warning: Nesting of subcircuits with parameters is only marginally supported!
warning, can't find model 1prebar
Circuit: KiCad schematic
Too few parameters for subcircuit type "74hc74" (instance: xxua)
Too few parameters for subcircuit type "74hc74" (instance: xxub)

Any idea?

Please try simulating the Analog multiplier from More simulation examples for KiCad/Eeschema/ngspice , which uses a simple code model.

Perhaps my KiCad installation is not correct?

Works fine, fresh installed at Ubuntu22:
Version: 8.0.1-8.0.1-1~ubuntu22.04.1

Any chance to solve the problem on my work-ubuntu?


wrong version of libngspice.

Must update with Synaptic-Paketverwaltung.
No idea, why do the update this job not automatically.
