FYI - Cura 4.6.1 and macOS Big Sur beta 1


Recommended Posts

Posted · FYI - Cura 4.6.1 and macOS Big Sur beta 1

Just to let anyone who is an Apple Developer (or anyone who signs up for bleeding edge beta builds) that Cura 4.6.1 will NOT launch on macOS Big Sur v11.0 *aka 10.16 (20A4299v)


It will bounce a few times in the dock, then stop. No crash reporter logging, nothing out of the ordinary. Just doesn't run.


I can grab logs if anyone is curious. I didn't file it as a bug because it's literally Beta 1 of the next OS, so I fully expect weirdness. Most things do actually work, but Cura doesn't. So I fall back on one of my other machines to run it and slice.


I support hundreds of Macs at work, so I run the betas to learn the new OS through and through before release and to help by submitting bug reports to Apple.


If the Cura team needs any testing of newer builds for compatibility feedback, I'd be happy to try them out.

    Hi, I don't seriously expect it to behave any better but you could try one of my Cura builds for MacOS as they are built a little differently from the UM releases (different Qt version, built on later OS). It would be useful to know if they run OK.


    You can find my releases at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0


    Please read the README.md file there before using.
