I've built kicad from source. Seems to work except that everything claims to be missing component libraries.
I've looked at "preferences, default paths" - I cant see anything that looks like a path for component libraries.
Downloaded kicad-library-4.0.7, I cant see any instructions or hints where it should live in the README ?
I moving it to /usr/local/share/kicad but It still is not picked up.
Resorted to "strace kicad", seems to stat every file in $HOME, but I still don't have any clues where the component libs should live ?
