Re: [Patch] Make pl_editor runnable from build directory


I usually run from the build directory, and have my debugger setup to use
it that way. I think there is an issue with the Python libraries though,
since starting the python console in Pcbnew gives the error
"ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'kicad_pyshell'", but I haven't dived
into why.
