I keep getting segfaults when running cura

Recommended Posts

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.

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 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.

    • "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.
