Cura 5: filename field in save dialog empty

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5: filename field in save dialog empty


I tried to use the Cura 5 appimage on Debian Linux. What is stopping me from using it is the fact, that the file name field in the save dialogues for save project and for save gcode file is always empty. This does not change with the custom printjob naming plugin installed.


any hints?

    I have the same issue.

    The filename-field is empty, and its almost impossible to write a filename into it.

    When you click on the field and press a key, this key is put into this filename-field, but the later keys are put into the search-field.

    I have managed to save one file, with the filename "a" without any more, had to change the file to a .gcode afterwards.

    The typing into the search-field brings the software to an unusable mode, i had to cancel cura the hard way.

    I am using Cura with an Arch-Linux, Mate-Desktop.


    Edit: Seems to be a problem of a library creating this Fileselect-Box. Happens to me in Brave-Browser, too, when trying to save an image.
