SOLVED: Compiling V5 RCs on Debian


Update on my build - all went well. The only issue I have now is that pcbnew fails to load sigh
This could be due to a possible conflict within that compile section (pcbnew) as it does state that is requires ssl1.0.2 (or something like that - I been up too long watching this) and that causes some conflict with curl (I recall seeing that at that point).

Been up all night tinkering with this compile and a vbox install of SID. Need sleep as its now 6:40 am here.

Any insight would be appreciated from those here that had a successful compile. Please check the other modules to see that they come up.


Exact I’ve the compile warning here :
> /usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/, may conflict with

/usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/, may conflict with

I don’t understand the conflict but…


I’ve create a simple example with a connector, a resistor and a capacitor.

When I want open CvPcb, it’s not possible because of is missing.

Exactly, it’s in the kicad-source-mirror/build/release/3d-viewer/3d_cache/sg folder but not installed by the sudo make install command.
Were I need to put it?

After, I decide to run kicad from Terminal, to see isues, the first is

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “atk-bridge”
that can be fixed by installing libatk-adaptor

Now, I’ve try to start PcbNew but it crash immediately…


@Chris60601, @gilou, I had to run “ldconfig” as root. After that pcbnew and cvpcb worked. So it was about the system’s library paths, not about KiCad installation per se.


Bingo! That did it!
I am now up and running with RC2.


That solve the problem!

Everyone -
I want to thank you all again for helping me through compiling.
Thanks a bunch
