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

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

I like to have both version 15.06 and 15.04 on one Ubuntu-Linux system because 15.06 does not work right for me for production at the moment, but I want to be able to experiment with it and use 15.04 for production.

When I install 15.06 it overwrites 15.04. How do I install 2 versions at the same machine?

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).

Thank you!

Works like a charm.

Now it's much easier to experiment with 15.06
