Trouble installing Cura on LinuxCNC 10.04 Please help!

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install Cura 12.12 on LinuxCNC 10.04 RTK (their latest version). I have Repetier working on that machine. I have used this link to assist me on the install.

I copied Cura to my desktop and then my documents folder and ran the cura.sh script, but nothing happened. No window or anythingI wish i was more knowledgeable in troubleshooting this. The python version it installed was 2.6 though. I'm not sure if Cura moved to Python3.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. Apparently 10.04 is based around py2.6 and has lots of dependent apps (like EVERYTHING). I tried manually installing python 2.7 onto my 10.04 install using several guides. About my 3rd reinstall of the whole OS (i couldn't undo the damage), i've gotten as close as linking python2.7 to the python command and getting past the Python.h errors by installing python2.7-dev by using this instructional

It gets me the error messages, but numpy is the only package that i can't get to install for the life of me. I only need this system for the 3 slicers and linuxcnc, so i'm not terribly concerned with package breaking outside of them and VNC. It's just that i spent 10 hours on this today alone and i'm kinda approaching the "screw it" line.

Is there a virtual environment or something that i can use to get cura to call? That would be MUCH easier....

    • "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.
