Language problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Daid,

I'm one of the Swedish users of Cura, and I have some problems. Using the standard settings of Cura, the program wont slice anything 3 days a week. All I get is a Ubuntu crash report, however Cura keeps running, and creating more crash reports.

I have located the source of this error to the fact that my Ubuntu is set to use the Swedish language. The problem is that 3 weekdays in Swedish contains special characters (Måndag,Lördag,Söndag), and when Cura generates ascii string from "{day}" in start.gcode these days are represented with ("mån","lör","sön"), which gets a representation containing something like 0xC3A5. If I start Cura with "LANG=en_us; cura", all is well, and my model slice.

the error is reported like:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/gui/sceneView.py", line 420, in _onRunSlicer

self._slicer.runSlicer(self._scene)

File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/util/sliceEngine.py", line 116, in runSlicer

for k, v in self._engineSettings(extruderCount).iteritems():

File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/util/sliceEngine.py", line 259, in _engineSettings

'startCode': profile.getAlterationFileContents('start.gcode', extruderCount),

File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/util/profile.py", line 797, in getAlterationFileContents

return unicode(prefix + re.sub("(.)\{([^\}]*)\}", replaceTagMatch, alterationContents).rstrip() + '\n' + postfix).strip().encode('utf-8') + '\n'

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/re.py", line 151, in sub

return _compile(pattern, flags).sub(repl, string, count)

File "/usr/share/cura/Cura/util/profile.py", line 685, in replaceTagMatch

return pre + time.strftime('%a').encode('utf-8', 'replace')

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)

 

I'm not a python guy and I don't know how to fix this, but the problem is as described above.

On a related note, I really must say I appreciate the new slicing engine. The only question I have so far is if Cura isn't a little to eager to slice the models. I know you don't like unnecessary stages in the printing process but I find the ever appearing slice process indicator a little annoying. The fact that Cura is eager to slice resulted in quite a few error reports as well.

best regards,

Johan K

    • "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.
