Cura 15.06 next to 15.04 on one (Ubuntu-Linux) system

Recommended Posts

For me worked this:

(think you have to do this as "root")

1. after installing the 15.04 deb-package copy the complete folder /usr/share/cura to your home folder

2. additional copy the file "cura" from /usr/bin to the cura folder in your home folder

3. change in the copied file "cura" the paths that they matches the new location in your home folder

4. make sure that "cura" is excecutable

Now you can start the 15.04 via "cura" from your homefolder and it never minds if 15.06 overwrites the old version.

Maybe you have to adjust some user rights (can't remember this exactly).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
