Yes, that would impact everything.

UltiMaker Cura is not officially supported on ChromeOS..
More here: https://support.makerbot.com/s/article/1667337917781

It appears people that force load generic Linux operating systems on these Chromebooks still have mixed issues.
I'm guessing its possibly related to being hardware unsupported by Cura

Or its something missing in the Linux operating system that Cura is expecting to be there..

    what would be a good slicer for ChromeOS?


    You came to UltiMaker's community to ask for a recommendation for a competing product?

    I don't know what 3D Printer you are using, but I would recommend to reach out to the community of that printer.

    If I kept using Cura how could I fix it?


    Im not sure what your asking, It is not recommended to use Cura on a Chromebook.

    This appears to slice and save just fine for me on Windows10.

    I had the same problem, but I finally got it working.  It needs to have removeable media mounted under /media

    such as at /media/sdg1   where the device is /dev/sdg1

    Then after clicking I get the button to say "save to removeable media"

    I should have prefaced, on a Linux system, I was able to get it to work.


    I can only tell the steps that worked for me:

    my media was mounted at /mnt/sdg1.

    replace sdg1 below with your media's "name"


    issue: following commands from a terminal.  you may need to be root depending on system, or

    possibly use sudo before each command.


    #if /media/sdg1 does not exist issue this:

    mkdir /media/sdg1


    #then issue the following commands

    umount /mnt/sdg1

    mount /dev/sdg1 /media/sdg1


    then after clicking on slice, when it finishes slicking,  the button should say "save to removeable media"

    unless you have selected usb, then use the dropdown to the right of the button to choose "save to removeable media"

    Another detail that may be helpful for Windows or Mac:

    The button did not work until I had plugged in a memory stick.

    Maybe that is all you need for Windows...

      • 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
