I can't use the Ultimaker Cura App


Recommended Posts

Posted · I can't use the Ultimaker Cura App

I just switched to Ultimaker Cura and i wanted a chance to see what the app has in store. I had no problem installing the app from the terminal and the download worked without a hitch. However, as soon as I tried to use Cura I had one unavoidable issue. I can't access the app because I get a popup without any options. An image of the popup is below. But unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way around it. I have tried clicking all over the place in the hopes of getting past it but to no avail. Is there a way to stop this from happening, or perhaps I can get around it. If anyone has any suggestions it would be of great help.


FYI: i use Linux Mint on the KDE desktop environment

    Try the AppImage as proved by Ultimaker instead of the version you installed. The version provided by Ultimaker comes with all the right versions of dependencies required to run Cura in its own "private" package (ie: without affecting the rest of your system).

      • 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
