I have installed Kicad in my Arch Linux using this command,
sudo pacman -S kicad. But I didn’t install
kicad-library-3d libraries. I downloaded them from the Gitlab repo. I tried to add a symbol. The popup window that appears to select symbols from opens and I find the symbol I need but “No footprint specified” is shown instead of its footprint.
I deleted these manually added symbols and searched to discover these packages
These two packages were successfully installed but Kicad didn’t read them. So I removed some config files to get the popup window to choose my libraries again as if this is the first time I open Kicad:
The same issue is still happening.
