Cura 15.04.4 will not connect to Lulzbot TAZ 5 on Ubuntu 14.04

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the advice. I will get to that tomorrow.

Am I using the best version of Cura for my system?

That seemed to allow the computer to connect to the printer. When I ran a print though something was wrong with the settings. It did not seem to be moving at the correct speed. Should I try to manipulate the expert settings? I am using a TAZ 5 and there is no profile for that model, only TAZ and TAZ mini.

I have often had trouble with the permissions of members of /dev being changed in both Debian and Mint after a single use. This happens far more often with the Arduino IDE than with other software, but it does with the TAZ5. I just got my Ultimaker today, so I can not speak to this device. Some times the port is even deleted. I have no idea why this happens, just know to check and fix with chmod when necessary.
