Migrating Cura to another system?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Migrating Cura to another system?

I bought a new computer. Both old and new are Linux. How can I migrate my existing Cura from the old computer to the new one? 


I already tried copying the Appimage to the new computer. I also copied ~/.config/cura, and ~/.local/share/cura from my old computer to the new one. However, when I start the Appimage on the new computer, it takes me to the "getting started" screen, and doesn't seem to find my configuration files, detect my printer config, or anything like that. 


Are there some other configuration files that Cura uses besides these two? or a better way to do a migration?
