Posted · Run Cura 15.04 and 15.06 on the same machine

I have an Ubuntu 15.04 machine and currently run Cura 15.04. I would love to give 15.06 a go and provide some useful feedback, but definitely need 15.04 for production.

Is there any way of having both installed on Ubuntu?

    Of course 15.06 crashed without even a whimpe

    Even a known problem ;-)

    The solution is here:

    btw: if a program crashes silently it's always a good idea to start it in a terminal ...

    Oh, and I have python3-opengl installed already.

    Well, having registered this bug and gotten no response, it was time to go hunting. I finally tried putting this: "from OpenGL import GL" at the start of the cura_app.py so it looks like this:

     

    #!/usr/bin/env python3# Copyright © 2015 Ultimaker B.V.# Cura is released under the terms of the AGPLv3 or higher.import sysfrom OpenGL import GL

     

    and hey presto, it works!
