Issue Running Cura from Source on Ubuntu


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Issue Running Cura from Source on Ubuntu

I am currently making my way through the Alternative Cura-build CMake Workflow included on the "Running Cura from Source on Ubuntu" article of the Cura Wiki.

I have hit a wall trying to get Qt to properly install when making the cura-build-environment. I keep getting this error:


ERROR: Feature ‘xcb’ was enabled, but the pre-condition ‘features.thread && libs.xcb && tests.xcb_syslibs && features.xkbcommon-x11’ failed

The full terminal text can be found in this Pastebin and the config.log can be found in this one.


I've tried installing a ton of potential dependencies and have tried implementing this solution to no avail.


Has anybody seen this before? Any clues as to how to how I can get past?

      • 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
