cura 5.0 and up have a problem with file links


Recommended Posts

Posted · cura 5.0 and up have a problem with file links

i've used cura appimages since version 3.3 on debian with no problems

it's really great

i've been using 4.13 for some time and thought it's time to upgrade

i downloaded 5.3.0 and it's works except for one thing

the directory where all of my 3d print files are located is a symbolic link in my home directory


~$ ls -l 3d_printer
lrwxrwxrwx 1 jb2 jb2 25 Dec 28  2020 3d_printer -> /od2/data/3d_printer/


cura can load and save files with no problem

but the location does not get updated in the cura.cfg


dialog_save_path =
dialog_profile_path = slicing-profiles-master/SE300/Cura
dialog_load_path =


i worked backwards in the versions and this stopped working in version 5.0

i'm hoping this is just a setting i'm overlooking

    that does seem to be the same thing i'm seeing

    i'll see if i can sign up on github

    i think i'll have to stick with 4.13 anyway if i'm going to keep using cura

    i also found that support blocker is not working in 5.*

      • 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.
