How to stop USB plugin grabbing printer?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to stop USB plugin grabbing printer?

So, I want to use Cura to slice but I want to use another application (e.g. S3D, pronterface, etc.) to actually print. How do I stop Cura grabbing the printer it sees on /dev/ACM0? Thanks.

Most straightforward way is to remove the USBPrintingPlugin for now.

Thanks for the reply.

OK, bit of a pain though as I have to remove it every time I update Cura. Would be somewhat nicer to have a preference that simply disables the plugin.

I might make a pull request for that some of these days. It's not that hard to fix. Ultimaker doesn't see it as a priority.

I just bricked my printer because Cura was active and I tried to program it with new firmware this is really a bad decision. I use octoprint. It must at least have an option to swicth it off, like auto auto prepare.

Go to the Toolbox, see the Installed tab and find the USB Printing plugin. Disable it and restart.

On Linux I could not find this option, now-where, please guide us to do it from the main menu, or if you downloaded the Linus image, where is the plugin directory to remove the USB plugin, I just cannot find it, and this is driving me crazy, Marlin aborts the current print and just resets. There must be a better way to solve this, have a tab to enable this option when needed !. I just aborted a 12 hour print after 9 hours .. , by accident, the main reason why I checked this 'question' again.

The Toolbox changed name to Marketplace.

 

Go to the Marketplace, see the Installed tab and find the USB Printing plugin. Disable it and restart.
