Hi - I’m struggling a bit trying to run the newest version (5) of KiCad on Raspbian (pi 3 model B). The old version (3) installs and runs. I’ve also tried Ubuntu 16 with no luck. What’s happening is dependencies can’t be resolved cancelling the install. This coming from the Software Center. There is a download file for armhf which extracts into /usr/bin, /usr/lib and /usr/share which I’ve tried with no luck. No installation instructions. The KiCad executable complains about missing libraries and modules within. I’ve attempted to update those libraries with newer versions with some success but can’t get all the missing libraries resolved. Thus no install.
The reason for the pi install is the large HDMI monitor which is a BIG help with PCB design.
I’m curious if anyone out there has got this combination running or is the arm7 architecture just not fully supported. Thus meaning an install isn’t possible. I do have KiCad 5 running on Mint 19 on my Dell laptop. Small screen, however.
If I can work with someone here to resolve this, I’d be happy to do any legwork required. I think others would benefit too. Any help, input and/or assistance very much appreciated. Many thanks.
Best - Scott
