Cura 12.12 on OSX 10.6.4 fails to run


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 12.12 on OSX 10.6.4 fails to run

Hi,

I have had Cura RC2, 3 & 4 running on OSX 10.6.4 since the summer, no probs with cura or printrun, using :

python 2.7.3, python-2.7.3-macosx10.6.dmg

wxpython2.9, wxPython2.9-osx-2.9.3.1-cocoa-py2.7.dmg

pyOpenGL, PyOpenGL-3.0.2a5 (tar.gz)

pyserial, pyserial-2.6 (tar.gz)

This 12.12 dmg package installs ok - just follow the instructions - but it fails to launch, giving a MacOs Error report.

Are there some to-do's on MacOs before running this new Cura version ? New Python or somehing ?

Does anyone have 12.12 running on 10.6.4 ? Does an earlier version, like the 12.08 work ?

I'm keen to try the "pause" feature ...

Regards to all, Happy New Year,

JonJude

    The pause function is also present in Cura 12.11, which you can still get from

    http://software.ultimaker.com/?show=all

    In 12.12 the packaging method has changed to solve a whole number of issues. And 12.12 doesn't require anything installed on the system anymore (as it contains everything) but apparently it doesn't work on your 10.6.4 install (while my build target was 10.6, so that's odd) I'll look into it. And try to use 12.11 in the meantime.

    Hi Daid,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think I need to mention, for the SW combination I got working before I had to specify

    VERSIONER_PYTHON_PREFER_32_BIT=yes

    in my shell before calling either cura or printrun.

    Yes, I'll try with the earlier version when I can.

    Regards,

    JonJude
