I am unfamiliar with different operating systems.  I have only used Windows.  I have a Lenovo Chromebook.  I think the operating system is Google.  Is there a way to run Cura on the Chromebook.

    If your chromebook supports running Linux which a lot of them do these days then you can run the Linux AppImage. Here's a thread that talks about running Cura on a chromebook

    Thank you for your help.  It looks like there should be something called Cura.appimage available.  When I do a search for it in Ultimaker, the only info I get is answers from the community.  I can’t figure out how do download the Cura.appimage.

    Ok, after stumbling around and banging into walls, I finally found the cura.appimage at github.  I’m downloading it now.  The next question is I am supposed to make it executable using my file manager or by entering certain commands into a terminal.  What is a terminal?  Where is the file manager.?

    I guess it doesn’t matter anymore.  The download gets just so far and quits.  I’ve tried it few times but it refuses to complete.

      • 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
