Posted · 13.06.5 debian hangs on startup

Hi

I have just installed Cura from the package on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

I get the blue splash screen and then nothing happens, the splash screen just stays on the desktop.

Any ideas how I can get it to run?

Regards

Ian

    Hi Ian

    You can open a gnome-terminal then just type the following

    /usr/bin/cura

    If ever it is another path, type which cura should tell you.

    As a naive guess, try to upgrade with apt-get update followed by apt-get upgrade.

    Sometime ago I ran into trouble due to the python or pypy version (see mine below).

    But it currently runs fine on my Ubuntu 12.04. Only the splash screen seems empty -- when it stays long enough so I can see it. Really not an issue for me, don't make it slower! ;)

    BTW a few more useful console commands to provide more information.

    Daid, I saw no "--verbose" nor "--help" option to Cura, they could prove useful maybe.

    I also don't know if python/pypy is still in use (I guess so for the GUI).

    lsb_release -a

    LSB Version: core-2.0-ia32:core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-ia32:core-3.0-noarch:core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:core-3.2-ia32:core-3.2-noarch:core-4.0-ia32:core-4.0-noarch

    Distributor ID: Ubuntu

    Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS

    pypy --version

    Python 2.7.2 (1.8+dfsg-2, Feb 19 2012, 19:16:05)

    [PyPy 1.8.0 with GCC 4.6.2]

     

    python --version

    Python 2.7.3

     

    cura && lsof | grep cura | awk '{print $9}' | grep -v /dev/

    /volatile

    /

    /bin/dash

    /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc-2.15.so

    /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ld-2.15.so

    /usr/bin/cura

     

    cheers,

    Jeremie

    Many thanks Jeremie

    I can now see an error. The update/upgrade did not solve the problem, error remains the same.

    ian@ian-desktop:/usr/bin$ cura

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode/wx/_core.py", line 14614, in <lambda>

    File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/gui/util/opengl.py", line 20, in <module>

    from OpenGL.GL import shaders

    ImportError: cannot import name shaders

     

    One for Daid I guess.

    I don't want to upgrade Ubuntu as I have linuxCNC on the same computer and they don't support 12.04 yet.

    Regards

    Ian

    mttr, your version of wxPython is too old for Cura (no idea which minimal version is needed)

    Oh, yes, sorry, that "missing shaders" error is from the Python-OpenGL package, most likely the version on your machine is too old for Cura.
