Unable to load part

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

i try to open an older project that havent opened for some weeks and couldnt load it as it should be

What I expected should have happened instead:

it should open my file with all the parts but now is missing the one i had the warning and all my design is broken.

i have checked the root of the part and is there… also i checked the permission of the folders and is open for all users and groups (no root access only)

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:

Fritzing 9.3b AMD64

Kernel : Linux 4.15.0-142-generic (x86_64)

Please also attach any files that help explaining this problem

Upload the sketch (the .fzz file, upload is 7th icon from the left in the reply menu) and I will take a look. You may also want to update your parts repository because the missing .fzp file should be there:


car sensors pcb spi nokia lcd and rear pcb.fzz (69.6 KB)

Works for me on 0.9.3 (and 0.9.9) on Windows:

The best I could suggest is clone your parts repository from the repo on github on the assumption the .fzp file is missing from the repository. You should find the file

ls fritzing-parts/core/sparkfun-connectors-rj45-8-pth-fix2.fzp

in the fritzing-parts directory in the Fritzing installation directory. If (as I expect) it is not there or not permitted correctly you will get this error message. Try and do a parts update from Help->Check for updates in Fritzing and see if it wants to load a new parts update (it should if as I suspect the local repository is corrupted!) Otherwise you can do a git clone of the parts repository on github in to the parts directory above then start Fritzing and run Part->Regenerate parts database which will run then exit Fritzing. When you restart Fritzing things should work.
