How to INSTALL Cura 5.3.0 on Ubuntu 22.10 Linux?

I am running Ubuntu v22.10 Linux. I would like to INSTALL Cura 5.3.0 into my system.


I know I can download the AppImage file for Cura 5.3.0 and just double click it in my Downloads folder to run it, but how do I INSTALL it so that it appears in my launcher/applications list?


The best I can get from the Snap store is Cura 4.13.0.

    Hi Calab,


    I use the AppImage file, as you mentioned, and I create a launcher that points to the AppImage file.  As I use quite a few applications this way I have a local "Apps" directory that keeps them in one place (instead of being mixed-in with other downloaded files).  Remember to change the permissions on the image file (allow to execute) before trying to use it.


    You can get more information about launchers here, or goggle for other ideas.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
