I have just installed kicad and am a beginner. Was trying to run the Getting to Blinky project from Contextual Electronics' Chris. When I clicked on the Cvpcb symbol in the schematic, it took a lifelong to load and issued some error message that I did not note. I further went on trying to install the footprint libraries on my pc using these 22 steps https://github.com/bobc/kicad-doc/wiki/How-to-install-local-Footprint-libraries
After I removed all the libraries in the global libraries list, I continued further to download the libraries from https://github.com/KiCad. But I got a error message which goes as follows:
"Error fetching JSON data from URL
Reason:'IO_Error;curl_easy_perform()=7: Couldn't connect to server from kicad_curl_easy.cpp:perform():line92'
So either way (through cvpcb downloading the libraries direct or through local footprints) I can't run any further
