How to install cura-engine in Cent OS?

Recommended Posts

I'm struggling installing cura-engine on a Cent OS based system.

On an Ubuntu based machine, it installs with the command

sudo apt-get install cura-engine

.

On Cent OS it should install with

sudo yum install cura-engine

, but the repository does not exist so I get the following error on the log:

 

No package cura-engine available

How can I add the package to Cent OS?

Is there another way to install it?

As a last resort due to the waste of space, will I be able to run cura-engine if I install the whole Cura including the GUI?

Saw your PR on GitHub - well done.

But there are some questions left...

Why do you install all dependencies via yum? cura-build is able to compile all of them for you. Of course this is not needed, but this way you can be sure that you are running under the same tested conditions (while thinking of the dependencies).

But so far, thank you for sharing your experiences with us.

    • "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.
