I'm trying to import the NetTie footprint library into CvPcb to implant a net tie into my PCB layout. I added the URL as a global library to the library table, but after clicking OK, I miss anything like "net_tie" or "NetTie" in the list on the left where all the libraries are listed:
What's wrong here? When using the Append Wizard, I get a list of libs hosted at Github, but the net tie lib is NOT on the list.
UPDATE: After a series of tries (with Kicad sometimes freezing), I could at last get the net ties into the list on the left, but the lib appears as if it didn't contain any footprints.
UPDATE #2: After a system upgrade (with Kicad now at 5.1.8), I can't do anything with CvPcb any more, as it always freezes just after placing a question dialog whether it shall re-assign footprints, which still come in the old format. All I get on the text console, is this:
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py:16629: UserWarning: wxPython/wxWidgets release number mismatch
