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?
