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?

    I'm up against the same issue with 3.6...  Trying to import my Bibo Touch .def files.  Can't figure out how to do that.  Did you find a way?

    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
