Being a long-time unsatisfied user of contemporary EDA packages, I though I’d give this one a go. The library architecture aligns 95% with my expectations, which is on par with Horizon (which I didn’t like because of other reasons) and more than any other package (like Kicad).
I followed the “Online installation” instructions for Linux, but after I run it and define my workspace folder, everything I do creates SQL errors and I can’t get anything useful done.
I understand this project is just over a year old and still somewhat immature. This makes me wonder if anything I did was unexpected by the developers (i.e. I changed all the default folders) or if I’m missing essential dependencies that the installer overlooked?
This screen recording explains it all:
NB. It doesn’t matter if I wait for the “Scanning libraries” bar to finish or not, and it doesn’t matter how many or few stock libraries I choose to download.
Okay, strange. You could try following things to investigate this issue (in arbitrary order):
Just deleting the workspace and creating a new one doesn’t fix the issue, right?
Try the AppImage instead of the installer - do you get the error too?
Install the package qt5-default (sudo apt install qt5-default) - although Qt is already bundled with LibrePCB, this might install some additional packages which are not bundled properly in the installer.
