Trouble installing Cura on LinuxCNC 10.04 Please help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Trouble installing Cura on LinuxCNC 10.04 Please help!

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.

http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Cura

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!

Cura needs python 2.7, wxPython, pyserial, numpy (for python 2.7)

You should run the cura.sh script in a terminal so you can see the error output.

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....

I've used virtualenv for the MacOS version. No idea if it works for linux.
