Linux AppImage Printer Install on start-up

Hi Folks

I'm a dedicated Cura user on Linux, but the AppImage for 5.2.X  requires you to install a new printer each time it starts up.  This was not the case with 4.13.1.  It is a huge faff to have to go through those start-up screens every single time!  Is there a reason for this?


It would be lovely if it would just start up.


Yours in anticipation

    Hey @D1sc1pleDan,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉
    That's odd, I've never heard of that before. 🤔


    Could there be something wrong with your configuration folder, that's the place where Cura remembers your printers. 
    You can find it by :

    1. Go to Help at the top bar of Cura
    2. Select Show Configuration Folder

    I'll bring it up to the team to see what they can do to help. Fingers crossed 🤞 

    In the meantime, have you considered using a back-up? 
    You can find it under Extensions | Cura Backups | Manage Back-ups. 
    That restores your configuration folder so both your printers and your profiles.

    Hey @D1sc1pleDan,


    I discussed your issue. 

    There is also a chance that something might have gone corrupted in your configuration file. 

    Perhaps this plug-in can help with removing corrupted files. 


    Or... If you don't mind starting over you can perform the clean install steps here:
