Cura 2.7 on Ubuntu - Broken after Update

Recommended Posts

So I've been using Cura 2.6 on linux for months now with out any issues, but yesterday I let ubuntu upgrade the packages automatically to 2.7.

After the upgrade Cura would start, but not slice, it would just report "slicing" but nothing would happen.

After trying a few things without success I removed all cura packages, ran apt update, apt upgrade, and re-installed. Same problem.

Now cura wont open at all. I've had to switch back to Slic3r...

apt? install? What? upgrade?

I have Ubuntu. I downloaded cura from the UM website and it's a single file. Nothing to install. Nothing to upgrade. Just execute the single file.

You probably want to delete everything in the cura folder that has settings from 2.6 to reset things back to zero. Do this when cura is not running and then cura recreates this folder:

~/.local/share/cura

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
