kicad-lib

My component and footprint library for the KiCad PCB design suite

Quick start

  1. Clone to wherever (I like ~/projects) and $ cd /path/to/kicad-lib
  2. Edit kicad.sh so that KISYSMOD is defined as /path/to/kicad-lib/footprints
  3. $ chmod +x linklibs (if not in linux, directories in this script should be edited accordingly)
  4. $ ./linklibs (this will ask for your sudo password)
  5. logout and log back in - kicad will now use these footprint files
  6. for each new kicad project, select the component libraries manually using Preferences > Library in eeschema
You can’t perform that action at this time.
