Re: Re: New coding guidelines.
For example its hard to
find the hardcoded paths in the source and this is a real LACK if i
install on linux and dont want to but it in the root directory. I
would like to work on it but its not well commented and structured
into files about reading the .KiCad .pcbnew files ...
I agree that the linux install could be improved. I would like the
installed data tree to be separate from the code tree, optionally.
I would like to be able to put the code in /opt/kicad or
/home/dick/kicad and cannot do that now. And I would like to put the
data tree in /home/dick/kicaddata for example.
CMake would need to spit out some C++ code containing the selected paths
and then that would be used instead of the hard coded paths in gestfiche.cpp
There may be ways, but this seems workable to me.
