can we get -DKICAD_SCRIPTING_ACTION_MENU option on as well? it adds the external plugin menu entry on pcbnew->tools.

I thing @greyltc suggestion is great, ngspice support is a very important feature.

greyltc commented on 2017-08-22 14:37

Could you please build with the following cmake flags:

cmake ../.. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
-DOCE_DIR="/opt/oce/lib/oce-0.18" \

and add ngspice to the deps?

@nickoe I've just tested it, after removing the workaround by @Andy2 I can still see the 3d models. Thanks.

nickoe commented on 2017-07-12 19:22

I have made a fix, please test it.

nickoe commented on 2017-07-11 22:15

It seems that you can debug the plugin by setting the environment variable; WXTRACE=3D_PLUGIN_MANAGER.

Thanks @Andy2 ! It works with your workaround on my setup. For reference, I am using 'kicad-git' package.

I found a workaround for the missing 3D shapes:

mkdir -p ~/.kicad/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/kicad/plugins/3d ~/.kicad/plugins/3d

The reason this works is, that in /usr/lib/kicad/plugins/3d are three shared objects responsible for rendering the shapes depending on their formats. I straced kicad and had a look what it does and I saw this:

stat("/usr/usr/lib/kicad/plugins/3d", 0x7ffdeed2bf70) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/home/andy/.kicad/plugins/3d", 0x7ffdeed2bf70) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

There is a /usr too much in the search path it tries initially. I don't know why and how it got there. The symlink in your user-directory makes it work temporarily, that's at least a workaround until we figure out why the search path is wrong.

Note: I'm using kicad-step-git instead of kicad-git, but that shouldn't play a role.
