cura 2.7 will not run on Mac OS X 10.8.5

Recommended Posts

Could you share the logs? See https://github.com/ultimaker/cura#logging-issues

There is nothing here:

$User/Library/Application Support/cura//cura.log (OSX). So I tried running it on the command line and got the trace:

Error in sys.excepthook:

Any clues here?

Pff, not really. It seems to crash when trying to acces a function from a support library that we use.

Did you also have issues with previous versions?


Nope.  I have only run cura on my PC up until now.  My only laptop, for traveling demos is my Mac.  Cura 2.7 is the first version I have tried to install on it.

Edit #1:

I just tried cura 2.6.2 - Same thing happens.

One more detail in both cases:

Initially the "C" appears on the dash board as the OS verifies the install, then it warns me that this is the first time it has run an internet download of cura.  when I give the the "OK" it crashes silently, no error screen, no log file.  Every attempt to start it past that point is a silent crash.

Edit #2:

Cura 2.6.2 will open and run if I open the app container, go to MacOS and double click on "cura". A terminal window opens and tons of info and a few errors are thrown out. Then cura actually starts and asks me to define a printer.

Cura 2.7 will NOT work if I go this path, I get a similar error as I posted above in its terminal window.

Hopefully something I am saying helps.  Does no one else out there have this problem?

    • "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.
