Cura steals serial port from pronsole (linux)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura steals serial port from pronsole (linux)

I like to maintain a console connection with my printer, but whenever I have Cura open, pronsole cannot connect. If I close Cura, pronsole works fine. I think that Cura is taking or locking the serial port file, even though Cura never needs to use the serial port (I print from SD card). Is there a way to fix this by completely eliminating serial from Cura so I can use both Cura and pronsole at the same time?

    Go to the MarketPlace, click on the Gear icon, and disable "USB Printing".


    Here you can see that I have it disabled (and for the same reason).  You will need to shut Cura down and restart after disabling.
