Stable Release

In general, latest Fedora releases ship the stable versions KiCad as they are released.

To install the most recent stable KiCad package on Fedora simply search for it in the Software app or open a terminal and run the following command:

dnf install kicad

In case the latest KiCad release is not yet available in the updates repository, chances are you’ll find it in the testing repository. Run the following command to install a testing package:

dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install kicad

Nightly Development Builds

Nightly development builds for Fedora are available via the copr build service.

This build can be installed on Fedora with:

dnf copr enable @kicad/kicad
dnf install kicad

The @kicad/kicad repository replaces the mangelajo/kicad repository that was previously used to deliver the development builds. If you’ve previously used it you can safely remove it now:

dnf copr remove mangelajo/kicad

If you don’t have copr install with:

dnf install dnf-plugins-core
