Cura 5.0 Linux on Chromebook Won't Open or Save files

Help...

I've upgraded from 4.13.1 (which worked faultlessly), to version 5.0.0 the program runs and starts ok! But the open button does nothing! However you can drag and drop a .STL file and it opens it and it slices it fine, however the "save to disc" button (for the GCODE file) again does nothing.. making the program useless.

 

It's running the ./Filename.AppImage in Linux on a New ASUS Chromebook.

 

I've tried running the Previous AppImage but that no longer works either.

 

I've set the file permissions "sudo chmod a+x Filename" and tried "sudo chmod +rwx" still the same issues.

 

It seems like Cura doesn't know where the default folder. open - save folder is or can't activate the File Dialogue box.

 

Has anyone got any suggestions or work arounds.

 

Thanks for any suggestions...

    Newbie here---I tried to work through the online account to see if I could save files on the cloud and pull them down elsewhere, but I can't. Have the exact same issue. Clearly the Linux/Cura/ChromeOS interfaces to not mesh. I'm sure there is a workaround for this issue---just need someone much smarter than I am to help out :)

    UPDATE: I downloaded several of the prior versions, including Beta's to see if one of them would work. Running 4.13.1 works for me. I'm able to click on File> Open and the open dialog box appears. This certainly indicates that there is a bug in 5.0.0.0 that needs fixing.

     

    ===================================

     

    Same problem. I have an Acer CB314. The install of Cura 5.0.0 went just fine. The program appears to run in every aspect, except clicking on the Open or File> Open does nothing. No dialog box appears, so I can't load or save anything. Upon starting the program from the Linux command prompt I get the following: 

     

    PyInstaller/loader/pyimod03_importers.py:495: DeprecationWarning: the imp module is deprecated in favour of importlib and slated for removal in Python 3.12; see the module's documentation for alternative uses
    qt.qpa.wayland: Ignoring unexpected wl_surface.enter received for output with id: 7 screen name: "Screen5" screen model: "075A" This is most likely a bug in the compositor.
    Cyclic dependency detected between "file:///tmp/.mount_Cura5.aiezrH/share/cura/resources/qml/Actions.qml" and "file:///tmp/.mount_Cura5.aiezrH/share/cura/resources/qml/Actions.qml"
    QQmlEngine::setContextForObject(): Object already has a QQmlContext
    qt.qpa.wayland: Ignoring unexpected wl_surface.enter received for output with id: 7 screen name: "Screen5" screen model: "075A" This is most likely a bug in the compositor.

     

    I hope someone can figure this one out and post either a work around that works or a fix for Cura 5.0.0.

    I've installed Cura 5.1.0 and this has the same issues as 5.0.0 can't load files if you drag a file onto it is loads however you cannot save the the sliced file...!  I'm using the latest version of the chrome OS (Version 104.0.5112.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)) and Linux Penguin is up to date.. Any suggestions are welcome

    You must update your Linux to bullseye. And you have install the Linux app store and download cura from there.  It works fine. Don't use the appimage file

      • 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
