Cura development for Linux 32bit x86 and for ARM64?

Hi,

 

Cura 3.x on my Intel 64 bit Ubuntu Linux is excellent for which I am very grateful.

 

I have been searching for a slicer that I could run on my Chromebook and through the use of the Android UserLand app, I can run an Ubuntu installation and Cura 3.1.0. This works surprisingly well via a local X-server or VNC client. I've done the same on my Samsung S9 phone for entertainment!

 

I was wondering whether the Ubuntu package files for the 32 bit x86 or the 64 bit ARM (aarch64 / ARMv8) versions of Cura 3.1.0 will ever see any updates for later versions?

 

David

    We stopped with the .deb file packages because they were causing too many issues for us (we switched to .appimags). There is a PPA out there for Cura, but I don't know how well that is updated.

    Does it also mean, that there will be no CURA version for Raspberry Pi in the future?

    It had been nice to have a RPi3 with monitor to run and monitor a network attached UM3 and hence no need for a continuously running PC.
    Using Octoprint seems to be different compare to CURA itself.

    I have a raspberry with octoprint connected with my printer. I have configured Cura on my laptop to send gcode directly to octoprint and start to print. Then I can turn off the laptop and control octoprint from the web interface or with a mobile app.

     

    Maybe you should give it a shot.
