It seems like has an additional sym-lib-table (holds libpaths) in ~/.config folder.
Which is of course not transferred with the project folder.
Inside the folder itself is only a partial sym-lib-table.

And apparently to view someone else's files you need a <project>-cache.lib .
Which is ignored if you have sym-lib-table in config.
And thereby it messes with eeshow vs. eeschema tests and whatnot.
idk what to do again.
Kicad devs, WHY??
Was it THAT hard to have all stuff in one place?
