How to migrate resource files from Windows to Linux Cura?

Posted · How to migrate resource files from Windows to Linux Cura?

I'm migrating Cura from Windows to Linux version.

I've some custom resource files to copy to Linux Cura:

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\meshes\some_custom_printer.stl

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\definitions\some_custom_printer.def.json

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\extruders\some_custom_exdruter.def.json

... and so on.

Therefore the corresponding directories on Linux aren't accessible as they are temporarily created at runtime.

How do I add the files to Linux Cura?

    Oh! Sorry, I missed this topic.

     

    On linux Cura has 2 locations where the files are placed

    So if you want them for 3.6, the config files need to be in ~/.local/share/cura/3.6/

    The cura.cfg (preferences) and the plugin.json need to be located in ~/.config/cura/3.6
