Unable to upload custom firmware using Cura on Chromebook


Recommended Posts

Posted · Unable to upload custom firmware using Cura on Chromebook

Hi, I have a chromebook that is connected to my printer over USB. I have Cura installed using the linux package, by installing it over the terminal


chmod a+x Ultimaker-Cura-5.0.0-linux.AppImage


Once Cura is launched and I have added my printer to the available printers, I click Manage Printers > Upgrade Firmware > Upload Custom Firmware.


When I click the Upload Custom Firmware button nothing happens, If I click "Automatically upgrade firmware" it will upload but this is not what I want, I would like to install a custom firmware.


Any advice on what might be stopping the custom firmware button from working? Its not greyed out, it just does not do anything when clicked.
