Hi,

Since there where now official packages of Cura 14.01 for Linux I created an unofficial ppa with packages for this. Note that this is my own spin of the package which are a bit more Debianized then the official ones. I have for instance splitted the package up in three sub packages, cura, curaengine and python power.

The ppa can be found here:

They work for me, Ubuntu 13.10 amd64, but there are no guarantees of any kind. Use at your own risk!

    HI Kenzu,

    I added packages for 12.04 Precise this morning. Note that i have no chance of testing these myself. If you do could you please let us know if they worked or not?

    Note that I'm slowly working with a debian maintainer to get Cura into the debian repositories. But there is a lot of shit that I did which does conflict with the "debian way".

    We've been slowly correcting this.

    I will also build 32 and 64 bit packages of Cura for the next release. (The universal package was giving issues, which is why 14.01 does not have an online package anymore)

    Official upstream support and proper Debian packages is of course the way to go. I created the packages due to the missing 14.01 packages for Linux and would of course rather see official ones ;)

    I really hope that the re-factored UM-packages would be provided via an Apt repository as well as loose deb downloads so that i could use my normal upgrade procedure, with the OS telling me about the update, also for the Cura packages.

    We're in the process of hiring an extra developer. As he is very Linux minded, I'm sure the Cura Linux support will improve because of this. But I have no idea if we will run our own apt server, as I have no idea how much work that is.

    Hi Daid,

    Running your own apt repo is "a piece of cake" with reprepro (Available packaged both in Debian and Ubuntu)

    Is there any chance of getting a working cura package for Ubuntu 14.04, or maybe even a repository?

    https://launchpad.net/~tor-krill/+archive/ubuntu/curappa says that "this repository is not maintained since Ultimaker now provides up to date packages." However I can not find a cura release that works on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

    Thanks!

    $ cura

    Requires wx

    Try sudo easy_install wx

    No module named wx

    $ sudo easy_install wx

    Searching for wx

    Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/wx/'>https://pypi.python.org/simple/wx/'>https://pypi.python.org/simple/wx/'>https://pypi.python.org/simple/wx/

    Couldn't find index page for 'wx' (maybe misspelled?)

    Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)

    Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/

    No local packages or download links found for wx

    error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('wx')

    The 15.04.xx versions work well on 14.04. LTS

    I do not want to hijack this thread which is about a cura repository for Debian-based operating systems. The initiative by tor-krill was great, and it would be just wonderful if someone could step up and enhance the Debian packages.

    (Regarding the official cura packages, I can only start version 15.04.4 on Ubuntu 15.10. On Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 … 14.04, not even the oldest releases continue beyond a splash screen ("ImportError: No module named agw"; more recent versions die with the error message "No module named wx"). cura 15.04.4 on Ubuntu 15.10 dies as soon as I configure or access the USB connection.)
