Hi. I’m using the 2013-july-07-stable build of KiCad on Ubuntu running under VMWare (hosted on MacOS X).
I am really enjoying using KiCad. I would like to use autorouting on my project. It appears that the solution for this is to use FreeRouting. Also, FreeRouting is no longer available as a web app, so it needs to be run from the file system instead of the web.
I downloaded the git archive from https://github.com/freerouting/freerouting.git
Then I build it using “ant”. This has created a folder called “binaries” containing a file called FreeRouting.jar.
I’m having trouble figuring out how to complete the rest of the setup for FreeRouting so that I can use it from within KiCad.
Can anyone explain how I would go about finishing this installation? Or even run free routing as some kind of external utility and then re-integrate the files into KiCAD?
