Symbols missing

I’m running Linux Mint 18.3 and have just installed Kicad Version: 5.0.0-fee4fd1~66~ubuntu16.04.1, release build

When creating a new schematic I get a error that libraries were not found, with a ton of *.lib files missing

If I try and place a part there are none to be found.

Under preferences, paths the symbol dir is /usr/share/kicad/library

However this directory does not exist.

What am I missing? How do I install the missing libraries?

Near the top of this page, on the right-hand side, find the link to " FAQ ". Within that index, locate the article " I installed KiCad 5 (under Linux) but there are no libraries. (The default option for sym lib table setup is disabled) "


The libraries - footprints, symbols and 3d models - are probably in their own packages.
Edit: See for the list of package names.

Thank you. Missed the FAQ. I have manually downloaded the libraries and installed them.
