KiCad footprint wizard broken
Last modified: 2020-12-30 10:01:07 UTC
In kicad-5.0.1-lp150.58.1.x86_64 I get the following error when I attempt to use the footprint wizard in the footprint editor to create a new footprint.
File "/usr/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pcbnew.py", line 3866, in GetFootprint
File "/usr/share/kicad/scripting/plugins/FootprintWizardBase.py", line 139, in BuildFootprint
fpid = pcbnew.LIB_ID(self.module.GetValue()) # the name in library
File "/usr/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pcbnew.py", line 5502, in __init__
this = _pcbnew.new_LIB_ID(*args)
NotImplementedError: Wrong number or type of arguments for overloaded function 'new_LIB_ID'.
Possible C/C++ prototypes are:
LIB_ID::LIB_ID(wxString const &,wxString const &,wxString const &)
LIB_ID::LIB_ID(wxString const &,wxString const &)

Note that /usr/usr is also a bug I have run into in the past with KiCad and created a symlink in order for this to work in the past. This is also referred to in https://forum.kicad.info/t/3d-models-not-showing/12494/9.

cleaning up... Leap 15.0 is discontinued, the package has since moved on. Please re-open if this occurs with a current Tumbleweed build or supported Leap release
