I keep getting segfaults when running cura

Posted · I keep getting segfaults when running cura

Alright, so here's the thing. I have always experienced segfaults when *closing* cura, but that wasn't too bad because… well, I was closing it anyway. But now I experience segfaults when *launching* cura, which is a bit troublesome. The weird part is that I haven't updated cura since the change. I believe some system updates have made the segfaults happen earlier.

I am running cura 2.4 on fedora 25, using the AppImage files. My friends in #fedora on freenode have said that they do not experience segfaults, even though they are using the same OS and same AppImage file. Can someone help me troubleshoot this thing? I really liked cura and I don't want to use some other slicer.

    Hi,

    I have the same issue happening...

    I have a laptop and desktop both running fedora25 ,

    Cura 2.4 appimage is working fine on laptop

    But crashes on start on the desktop when creating the window (after the splash screen)... a segfault.

    I can help troubleshooting if necessary, just let me know what to do.

    Thanks and regards

    I think it's this one:

    libglvnd-devel

    I had the exact same problem, and installing that package fix it, so I can confirm that installing the libglvnd-devel package fixes the segmentation fault.

    I was getting segfaults running Cura AppImages on Fedora 26.

    I started with the latest at the time 2.6.2 and then tried 2.6.1 and 2.6.0. I was getting the same segfault.

    Installing the libglvnd-devel package fixed them.

    Thank you!

    I had the same problem on Devuan Linux (latest Ascii release). Unfortunately, the libglvnd-devel library doesn't exist on that distribution and, because I had installed the latest Nvidia drivers directly, the equivalent packages didn't work either.

    I found the source code for the library on GitHub: https://github.com/NVIDIA/libglvnd

    I then followed the instructions to download and build. I then had to run "sudo make install" to install the new libraries.

    With that done, Cura starts and runs nicely.

    For what it's worth, Cura 2.6.2 runs fine... but still segfaults on exit (every time - Devuan Linux "Ascii", basically Debian 9 "Stretch" without systemd).

    Interesting I also have NVidia drivers installed..

    However, I don't think you need the *-devel package. The regular libraries shall be enough.

    Haha, after installing libglvnd-dev on Ubuntu I get the same.

    But now after installing

    thopiekar@home:~$ cura

    Speicherzugriffsfehler (Speicherabzug geschrieben)

    However, using the PPA here...

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
