Cura 4.3 & Linux Mint 19.2

After launching the Appimage as executable, the only image appearing on the screen is a blank window with the title Ultimaker Cura. Tried different versions. Removed all cura files in .config and .local directories and relaunched Appimage.

Result - no difference.

    I'm unfortunately not seeing anything that could explain the issue.

    Could you try if the (unofficial) ppa does work (that way we can cross out the appimage as the cause of the problems)?

    Hi burtoogle

     

    Downloaded your x86_64 builds version 4.2 20190912 and it presents the input screen after accepting the conditions. At least version 4.2 works! Next I shall follow the advice provided by Nallath.

    Hi @wrc, well that's something. You could try the 1003 release also as that is based on more recent code from Ultimaker.

    Not getting any joy from the PPA

     

    An error occurred during a connection to thopiekar.eu. Peer's Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

     

    No luck via Pietrowski's PPA either.

    burtoogle -

     

    Release 1003 also appears to be fine as regards launching. Would 1003 be equivalent to the latest release 4.3 - as the only reference is Ultimaker Cura Master?

     

    As regards the PPA no luck - Linux Mint 19.2 (Tina) is based on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver), but even installing the PPA does not show the later versions in the PPA. Only version available from the repositories is version 3.1.0.

     

    Now the odd thing is that while leaving the Ultimaker Cura Master (1003) on the system, I downloaded the Appimage 4.3.0 (again! - having previously deleted all files related to Cura and re-installed more than once to no avail) and it now works! Any idea why this might be?

     

    Thanks for the advice and guidance.

    Yes, the 1003 release will be fairly similar to 4.3.0. I can't explain why you can now run 4.3.0 also.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
