Cura on Arch Linux won't open my file explorer/web browser

Hi!

 

I just recently installed the flatpack version of Cura on my Arch Linux PC and I'm having a pretty "game breaking" bug. After installing Cura, I tried to slice a sample 3D model, but whenever I click "Open File", nothing happens. I also tried signing into my Ultimaker Account, but when I click "Sign in", nothing happens either. My default file explorer is Dolphin and my default web browser is Chrome. That being said, when I drag/drop a file into Cura, it slices correctly, but once again, when I try to click "Save to Disk" nothing happens, and I cannot save the output GCode...

 

I also tried installing the non-flatpack version of Cura, but the same thing happened. I even tried re-installing my whole operating system, and still, nothing works. My other applications on my PC do not show this behaviour, which makes it even weirder.

 

If you have any suggestions, or need any additional details, please, let me know 🙂

Cheers!

    Hey @yacinbm,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimake Community 🚀

    I recognize your issue 🤔


    We've had more linux users report issues with opening on our Cura github 
    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/12266

    I'm personally not a linux user so I don't know which of the comments in the thread are helpful. 
    Just know that we've added a ticket to the backlog with the intent to improve this.

    Hey @yacinbm

    Quick update on our side. We might have a fix for this issue. 🎉 


    It's a bit hard for us to test, but we have a nightly build available. 
    Can you please try it out and let us know if it resolves your issue? 

    You can find the download links and the discussion here.

    Hi Mari,

    I suggested a fix in another thread.  But you might want to post this as a quick fix for anyone installing the Cura AppImage on ChromeOS.  Simply installing a file manager lets Cura access the local filesystem.
    Perhaps packaging a simple QT file manager with the AppImage would be a better fix...

      • 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
