Greeting, KiCad 5.1.9 on MacOS10.14 (Mojave). Trying to follow the provided tutorial. I get to this step in the eeschema section where it begins describing adding a Project Specific Library:
- Select the Project Specific table. Click the file browser button below the table. You need to find where the official KiCad libraries are installed on your computer. Look for a library directory containing a hundred of .dcm and .lib files. Try in C:\Program Files (x86)\KiCad\share\ (Windows) and/usr/share/kicad/library/ (Linux). When you have found the directory, choose and add the MCU_Microchip_PIC12.lib library and close the window. It will be added to the end of of the list. Now click its nickname and change it to microchip_pic12mcu . Close the Symbol Libraries window with OK.
The problem is that /usr/share/kicad does not exist in this installation as verified by using Terminal. There appear to be libraries in /Users/[thisuser]/Library/Preferences/kicad/syms-lib-table but those seem to be the Global Libraries. What “official libraries” are being referred to in the tutorial? Are they both in the same place?
What is the correct thing to do?
