Can't run Cura after upgrade to Ubuntu 16.10

Recommended Posts

I'm running Cura from thopiekar's PPA and it worked fine on Ubuntu 16.04 but after an upgrade to 16.10 it crashes with a segmentation fault after showing the splash screen. I have deleted ~/.local/share/cura, ~/.cache/cura and ~/.config/cura. I have also tried to remove Cura and the PPA and install it again but I see the same problem. Is there any dependency that might be missing after the upgrade?

These are the last lines of the log:

QObject::connect: Parentheses expected, signal MainWindow::

QObject::connect: Parentheses expected, signal MainWindow::

@Thopiekar Do you know what might be going wrong here?

 

Good question. I'm using Ubuntu YakketyYak aka 16.10 on my own I never got any problems so far. The only reason I can think of is that I missed a dependency, but as far as I can see from @aahlborg terminal output I see no output that mentions a missing module or any other component.

@aahlborg: Just to be sure. You are using my stable PPA, isn't it? - https://launchpad.net/~thopiekar/+archive/ubuntu/cura

Hello,

I have just install cura from your PPA with UBUNTU 16.10 and I got also an issue:

It would be great if you can help, otherwise I will have to revert back to 16.04 :-(

Thanks a lot in advance

I'm seeing the same thing on 16.10.

The crash might not be related to any of those error messages. There is a lengthy pause after the messages during which the splash screen appears and disappears before the segmentation fault.

I've posted complete command line output here:

@Thopiekar, is there a complete list of dependencies somewhere so that we can be sure we're not missing anything?

Thanks

    • "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.
