If there is anybody whith furter questions, pleas ask my …

Do you have gtk-theme-config installed?

i have install it, i make a update, try to purge the hole kicad, install it
again with the ppa, still the same.
when i rename the pcb file to filename.pcb_save, the kicad ask my to create
a new pcb. after insert the netlist, i can work for about 10 'moves" , then
still the same.

im not shur, when i open a new project, or an old project, everthing is
working… so mayby i have a problem in my libs or pretty files?

if ther is a posibility to fibd out whats wrong?

Is this the same issue as

Yes, i think so, i habe read the posting from bug 1700269…
maby it helps when i compyl kicad from sourccode…

I try this tomorrow…

I find out same realy strange thing…
1.) I open kicad, make same cange in the drawing…
2.) Build a netlist. -> crash

then again… ( i try this 20 times !!! )

1.) Open kicad, make same canges (its enought to change the footprint from a symbol )
2.) I save the schematic.
3.) open it again, Build the netlist, -> Now its working!! hmm

but when i change a footprint , whitout saving the file ( befor crating the netlist ) crash…

i can see also same phenomen…
i work with 2 Monitors, ( left the schematic right “projectfie” and the layoutprogram)

when i change a footprint in the schematik, and i save the file, befor i build the netlist,
then the “icon” from the Schematik file is gone…

sorry, its not possible to my to insert two pics. i put 2 scrrenshots together.

Mayby this is helpful…

regards, joerg
