Cura 4.11 on linux


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.11 on linux

I was wondering if someone could please help me out with an issue i'm having.  I am running Cura 4.11 on Arch Linux and I am trying to setup my Prusa printer with it.  I downloaded the profiles from Prusa and followed the instructions for the first three things, which is the following:


1.  Copy the .json file from the Cura_printer_definition folder to the definitions folder in linux.  I placed that file under ~/.local/share/cura/4.1`1/definitions

2.  Copy the .json file from the Cura_printer_extruder folder to the extruder folder in linux.  I placed that file under ~/.local/share/cura/4.11/extruders

3.  Copy the .stl file from the Cura_meshes folder to the meshes folder in linux.  I placed that file under ~/.local/share/cura/4.11/meshes (I had to create the 'meshes' directory since it did not exist)


At this point you now go in and add the printer but I do not see the "Original Prusa i3 MK3/MK3S" under "Prusa Research".  All I see is the Prusa3D that comes with Cura.  I saw somewhere else that you have to place those folders under ~/.config/cura/4.11/resources but that did not work for me either.


Could someone please help me with getting this configured properly?

    Thank you for the reply @nallath.  Which folder should do it, the .local or the .config?  Do you want to see the cura.log file that is in "~/.local/share/cura/4.11/" cause I do not see any other activity in the log since 10/7/21 that would indicate an issue with the program or profiles but I can paste it in here.
