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

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.
