Re: adamwolf-kicad-scripting-testing-daily ppa - import pcbnew not working


I'm able to compile using my recipe and packaging stuff on my local
machine, and it works, but when I upload the recipe to the PPA build
servers, it produces crashy programs.

What OS version are you using?  I'm having issues getting it to work on any
Ubuntu version older than 12.04. I had this description on the recipe, but
not the PPA. "This is a testing build of KiCad, with scripting enabled.
Scripting support works, but may crash. This package might not work."  I
have since added it to the PPA as well.

I was able to get the footprint wizard to work fine, which imports from

I'm running into a variety of small issues, including the fact that with
12.10, the Ubuntu package number has changed from 0.0.date to 0.date.  I
think it may be prudent for me to change my PPA versioning to match,
otherwise I think we'll see some weird issues. (The old kicad in the
official repo will always be a higher version than my current generated
packages, for 12.10 and newer.)

I'll certainly post here when I feel the packages are ready to be tested.
 After that, starting the middle of November, I hope to spend an hour a
week on KiCad packaging for Ubuntu/Debian until it's where I like.
