KIcad leaving lot of graphical "garbage" behind
« on: April 20, 2016, 09:19:36 pm »
I did not know the best way to explain this so here is a screenshot of what I mean:



When manipulating/moving stuff it seems to make a mess.  Zooming in and out clears it.  Is this a known issue and is there a fix for it?   Using build 2013-jul-07.... actually that seems old, I installed from the PPA.  Or is that the latest stable release?

OS is Linux Mint 17.1.

The version you are using is ancient.

Go to kicad-pcb.org (the official Kicad website), and get the latest version, currently 4.0.2.

That's where I got it, it just pointed me to a PPA which I setup with the provided command. Though I think what may be happening is when I do apt-get install it's just getting it from the main repo instead of the PPA.  Is there a way to verify this or tell it to use the PPA?

Oh just realized I forgot to do apt-get update.  I installed and now I'm at 4.0.2-4 and the issue I was having is gone now.

Excellent!

If you ever need to check in future, try this:

Code: [Select]
apt-cache policy kicad
The "Candidate" line will show the version which will be installed.
