Hey, when i run CvPcb to assign footprints i get the following error for my schematic using an ATMEGA16U2:
The following errors occurred attempting to convert the footprint assignments:
Component ‘IC1’ footprint ‘TQFP-32’ was not found in any library.
You will need to reassign them manually if you want them to be updated correctly the next time you import the netlist in Pcbnew.
Note that in my modules directory I found a file /usr/share/kicad/modules/Housings_QFP.pretty/TQFP-32_7x7mm_Pitch0.8mm.kicad_mod
There was also a topic long ago (2015) about this it seems, but not helpful to me.
I’m quite confused since this mcu was available in the components list by default and not to be considered exotic. Why dows KiCad list it but does not provide any footprint? Is TQFP-32 that unusual? Since I’m designing my first board and try to stick to standard parts, im very reluctant towards creating the footprint myself. But maybe someone here can provide a quick solution.
