Cura shuts down when connecting to ultimaker

Posted · Cura shuts down when connecting to ultimaker

Hi everybody,

I encountered a very strange error.

The story is the following: after having trouble with flow options on my ultimaker I wanted to reinstall the marlin firmware.

I got cura on my notebook(ubuntu 12.04) because the printer is normally controlled via ulticontroller and not directly connected to the pc i first worked with.

So i plugged the ultimaker in, fired up cura and tried to run the firstrun wizard.

I worked through the wizard and pressed "Upgrade to marlin firmware". At that point cura simply vanished, as if closed. Being curious i started cura via console and did exactly the same and exactly the same happened. All the console read was:

taires@taires-UL30A:~$ cura

python: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.

taires@taires-UL30A:~$

 

And I have no clue what this means.

 

Help would be appreciated,

Thanks

Taires

    Hey Taires,

    just a few flaires....

    Is the printer connected to a earthed wall mount?

    Is the computer connected to a earthed wallmount?

    Your notebook will probably not, so try to connect the USB cable before you start up the computer and never connect or reconnect the power cable from the Ultimaker while the powerswitch is on. Connect your notebook powersupply even when the battery is full. And put them in the same wallmount. It could be a EMC problem I encountered myself with the same outcome.

    Otherwise, try another laptop or even a desktop pc, but with the earthing connected either way.

    Good luck

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
