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
    Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 80: saw unknown, expected number
    qml: TableViewSelection: index out of range
    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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
