"Open Recent" on Cura 4.5.0 in Linux not updating


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · "Open Recent" on Cura 4.5.0 in Linux not updating

I recently updated to Cura 4.5.0 on an Arch Linux system using Gnome, and I have noticed that the recent files list is not preserved between sessions. For example, if I open Cura, then open some STL files, while Cura remains open those files appear in the recent files list, but if I close Cura and re-open it, I am back to whatever files I last worked on in an older version of Cura. Does anybody have any siuggestions?

Edited: I found my cura.cfg file which contains this list, and it was last written in June of last year... I suspect this would be the cause of my difficulties... Still no idea how to get it to update, though

    I noticed this also. What I have recently discovered is that on Linux, Cura saves the cura.cfg file to ~/.config/cura/RELEASE/cura.cfg but when loading the file it will load it from ~/.local/share/cura/RELEASE/cura.cfg if that file exists. I think this is a bug and I just deleted the old cura.cfg.
