Compiling Cura 13.03 in OSX 10.8


Recommended Posts

Posted · Compiling Cura 13.03 in OSX 10.8

I am trying to compile latest github pull of Cura on 10.8.3 OSX and managed to setup the environment as well as package the .dmg file. The only problem is that after I installed the .dmg file which I packaged earlier, I tried to run Cura. Cura quits immediately. When I try to run cura.py using pythonw, the following error appears:


File "cura.py", line 15, in <module>

from Cura.util import profile

ImportError: No module named Cura.util


Anyone can help?

    Thanks for the tips. I have managed to compile, run and package successfully on 10.8. Hope fully this helps.

    Follow the instructions in github Daid/Cura on OSX section. After that, try to run cura with pythonw -m Cura.cura

    as per Daid's advice above.


    Then there may be errors and try to install the missing modules:


    easy_install pyobjc-core

    easy_install pyobjc


    pip install numpy

    pip install PyOpenGL PyOpenGL_accelerate

    pip install pyserial

    pip install power

    Finally, Cura should be able to be executed finely. Then only package it with ./package.sh darwin.
