[Linux] Visibility Settings not saved since Cura 4.6.2

Posted · [Linux] Visibility Settings not saved since Cura 4.6.2

Hello there,


I have a small issue I can't solve:


Since Cura version 4.6.2 (also still with 4.7.1) my "visibility settings" are not saved any longer. I have to remark them every time in the configuration/settings screen. The values of those settings, though, are getting saved.


Also - I guess it's the same issue/reason - when opening 4.6.2 or 4.7.1 I get the release note/changelog screen everytime at the start (like it would be a first time opening the appimage).


Those things do not occur with 4.6.1 and I have no idea what could be causing it. But it's bugging me a lot.


If someone has any idea what the problem could be or what I could try, let me know.

    Sounds like the application or the user who runs the application has no write permissions to the configuration folder.


    I would agree if the values of the "unlocked visibility" settings wouldn't be saved, but they do. And I can see in the config folder the "cura.cfg" file gets changed.


    Is there another folder beside /home/user/.config/cura ?


    I just downloaded 4.6.0 (a version I never had, 4.6.1 was the first on my PC) and there the problem also does not occur, so it really starts with 4.6.2.


    Well, I will open an issue on github then, if that's the way to go.


    Thanks for your reply.

    Sounds strange and as far as I know Cura uses just one configuration folder, so when this folder is writeable then the root cause is something else.


    I never tried the Linux version, but open an issue on GitHub is the best way to report such things.

      • 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
