Hi, im realitivly new to 3d printing and I have a chromebook so I get the linux version on Cura, But when I load up Cura (with micro sd card already reconized) It doesn't give me an option to save to removable drive. (this is after I have sliced it) Open to any solutions 🙂 sorry that the picture is upside down Screenshot2023-04-0211_48_12.thumb.png.ba7fec85d4825c4f648b4d313289a1e2.png

    I stumbled upon this fix for the Cura AppImage, which I installed the latest version of (5.3.0) on my Chromebook.  Previous versions may or may not have the same issue, but this is probably applicable to those versions as well.

    So I looked at the log messages generated by Cura in Terminal for a clue and came across this:

    No applications found for mimetype: inode/directory
    .No applications found for mimetype: inode/directory

     

    Which started the wheels turning.  Running this to display the default application for the above mimetype:

     

    xdg-mime query default inode/directory

     

    came up empty.  So ChromeOS Linux doesn't have a default file manager (like Nautilus or Thunar) and an AppImage can't open files or folders.  This article suggested Nautilus, or rather the Cinnamon fork, Nemo, for ChromeOS.  After installing it (Warning: installs a LOT of packages):

    sudo apt install nemo

    And restarting Cura, voila

    Hi. Thank you for replying, I do have nemo installed already, the problem is that it doesn't give me an option to save to a removable drive. Maybe i'm just dumb and don't know how to use the Linux file management system

    you might need to do a right-click "Share with Linux" on the USB drive with the ChromeOS Files app

    That worked, thank you, one last question, how am I supposed to save, I click the save button it does nothing because I go to my chrome files (preinstalled) and its not there.

    you need to manually enter the filename to save.  the filename field is left blank by Cura:
