I wanted to share a quick tip for anyone installing the new KiCad plugin. We've found an issue on *some* Linux installations whereby they don't come pre-installed with the required dependencies/modules needed. As a result, upon the "Refresh Plugins" step, you won't see the plugin installed.
We are aware of the issue and actively working on a fix. In the meantime, you can run:
sudo apt-get install python3-tk
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
That should resolve the issue. We will keep everyone updated on a fix.
Again, this is a rare edge case that just affects *some* versions of Linux. There are no known issues with Windows. As for Mac, we have a Mac version in development too.
Keep us posted if you find any other issues, and if you'd like to be more involved in our development process, just reach out to me and I'll add you to our Slack channel. :-)
