reverb_1: I had my wife check by compiling KiCad-nightly fresh having never had it installed before and it worked flawlessly for her.

I can only surmise given what you're seeing vs the package deps and my own experiences with building KiCad, that your installation of Boost is screwed up or you've got something set in your shell that is causing proper detection of Boost to fail. Please review your .bashrc (or other config for your shell, whichever one you happen to use) as something you are doing is causing the failures.

I have tried setting the environment variable to /usr/include/boost but it still is not working. I am at a loss of what I am missing.

Edit(11/19): Strangely it complied when I ssh into the machine. For some reason it cannot find the Boost components: filesystem system

CmakeLists.txt from Successful compile:

//The directory containing a CMake configuration file for Boost.


//Path to a file.

ah, thank you DCengineer for providing me a reason for making it optional.

I'd back-and-forth'd about it in the 1BitSquared community Discord and we figured to make it a normal dependency in favour of ease of use, however as this screws up your use case that's a good reason to me to drop it back to optional.

I will make this change for today's nightly.

kicad-library-nightly should be an optional dependency. Since I do library development, I maintain my own fork of the official libraries.

Thanks caltgin :) That has now been done
