Total noob Question on Cura and Raspberry pi

Posted · Total noob Question on Cura and Raspberry pi

I'm trying to install the full blown build of Cura on my Pi. All I can get is the Cura Engine that works with OctoPrint. I can't seem to get all the functionality of Cura in OctoPrint. Can someone please point me in the right direction or is it not possible?

    Impossible is nothing, but it would require a fair bit of development to run Cura (the frontend) on a raspberry pi. The RPI has no OpenGL (only GLES), and probably runs out of memory loading even the simplest STLs; one of the reasons UM stopped supporting win32 was that it kept running out of memory, at 4 gb.
