Cura 3.3.1 Linux

Recommended Posts

Downloaded the Appimage, moved it to my Home directory, made it executable. When I click on it the black Cura screen appears, show loading various modules, gets to initializing interface sits there for a few seconds, the black box disappears and that is as far as it gets.

 

Thought possibly I had a bad download so I deleted it and download it again same results

Works for me in ubuntu linux.  You need opengl drivers for cura to work.  Do you have those installed?  I didn't have to install anything but maybe you do.

You could try to start the AppImage in a terminal to see if there are any error-messages.

Open a terminal and move to the folder where your AppImage resists, then type

./Cura-3.3.1.AppImage

Here's the output from trying to run it from the terminal

 

 ~ $ ./Cura-3.3.1.AppImage
QApplication: invalid style override passed, ignoring it.
Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 72: non-double matrix element
Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 72: non-double matrix element

qml: TableViewSelection: index out of range

Here's the output if I run 3.2.1 in a terminal except the app actually starts and runs
 

~ $ ./Cura-3.2.1.AppImage
QApplication: invalid style override passed, ignoring it.
Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 72: non-double matrix element

o.k. these messages seems to be "normal" - get the same here (Linux Mint 18.3) but it runs as expected.

Only out of curiosity what Linux do you use?

Also have a look in your homefolder for the hidden folder .local/share/cura

there should be the files stderr.log and stdout.log and a folder 3.3 with a file cura.log inside.

Maybe in these files is a hint what's going wrong ...

Didn't realize that was there, according to the log it has something to do with my printer configuration or at least that is the way I read it.

 

If I rename the /local/share/cura directory and then tried to start 3.3.1 it will then start as brand new asking to add printer. I have a PowerSpec Duplicator i3 Plus which is a rebranded Wanhaeo Duplicator i3 Plus as popular as the Wanhaeo printers are I am surprised it's not listed.

 

Oh am using LinuxMint 18.3 64 bit

cura.log

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
