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).
