I'm running a Dell Vostro 1220 with SSD and Ubuntu 16-04.

Sorry, I'm also new comer to Ubuntu and Linux shell ... this may be the reason !


Any how thanks to the one who knows and agree to spend some time in helping me !

    Hi, you don't need to install it as such, you only need to make it executable. To do that on the command line do



    chmod +x Ultimaker_Cura-4.5.0.AppImage


    You can probably also do it from your filemanager (perhaps, right click, properties?)


    Once the file is executable you an either execute it from the command line or from the file manager.


    Hope this helps!

    I have an Acer Chromebook and I need to connect to my 3D printer. How can I use this same software to be compatible with the 3D printer?

      • 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.
