Cura 3.3.1 not starting...

Recommended Posts

Hi!
I've installed Cura 3.3.1 on a slightly old ACER Aspirae 5625G laptop..

 

When I launch Cura, I can see the cura.exe in the taskmanager for about 10secs, then it just disappear... I don't get the splash screen or anything...

I've tested with a couple of older versions of Cura as well with the same result...

In the stderr.log, I see a python segmentation error...

 

 

Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault

Current thread 0x00000ca8 (most recent call first):

I've tried updating the video-drivers (it has two video-cards, I'm not really sure why, but I'm guessing on for the laptop-screen, one for the external screen connection)...

I've updated the chipset drivers

I've tried updating python

I've reinstalled Cura a couple of times, completely removing everything (including appdata)

The machine is as mentioned an Acer Aspire 5625G:
Amd Athlon II X2 P320 (2.1GHz)
ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470
4GB Memory


Any ideas?

    • "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.
