Installation of Legacy Cura (15.04.xx) on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTE

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Problem:

I try to install legacy Cura (15.04.xx) in Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTE. On Ultimaker Cura software download page i select version 15.04.6. The debian package downloads fine and opens Ubuntu software center where I can confirm that Cura v15.04.6 is about to install. When I hit the install button, a small progress bar shows that the installation has started. Suddenly, the bar jumps to the end and the whole page refreshes and I can see that the Cura version goes to 2.4.0. When I check whether Cura v15.04.6 installed or not I can confirm it's not. When I hit that installation button again Cura 2.4.0 installs.

No matter what version I download, for some reason I only get to install Cura 2.4.0.

Cura 2.4.0 works as supposed to when I fire it up.

Why Legacy and not 2.4.0?

I would like to use a well tested (by me) version with the possibility for dual extrusion on custom machines. The settings I have on a different computer (windows platform) could be the easily moved to the new installation and I wouldn't have to start from scratch with a new and quite different version.

Help is much appreciated.

    • "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.
