Can anyone explain in simple terms how I can get all of the github libraries copied into my global library folder on my PC?
I have just re-loaded the program again, removed all the old libraries, copied the latest download of libraries to a local folder and killed the original fp-lib-table.
The setting for Sysmod is C:\Kicad\share\kicad\modules\ in the paths. I asked the Wizard to do its stuff by selecting all the folders in the downloaded Github libraries (on my computer option selected). It then validates 91 libraries and asks me to review and confirm changes**. Press Next and the “To global library” option is selected. The manager then shows item 1 to 83 as being Github type whilst 84 to 91 are Kicad types despite all being shown as kicad type at point ** above.
I have copied the fp-lib-table.for pretty from the templates folder which then shows everything as being Kicad type but the last 7 are in a different location to the Kicad folder.
I am at a loss as to how to force the Wizard to put the libraries where I would like them, or even so can make sense of them. The modules folder I asked for the libraries to be in was empty.
In frustration, I copied the folders from the download into that folder and tried to add them again. They still remain as Github type.
It seems crazy that the fp-lib-table does not agree with the selected location in the path settings, although it does show the libraries as Github type, except for the last 7 as above.
I like Kicad and have used the old stable version since it came out in 2013, but the library issue with the updated versions makes it un-reliable as every new release seems to have yet another problem with library loading.
Do I have to edit the fp-lib-table manually, as the path setting just seems to be ignored?
