How to start cura in Ubuntu?

Recommended Posts


Yes,I am new to use Cura and not familiar with ubuntu.I have install cura in my ubuntu,and I can find cura.py in the path "/usr/share/cura/".To start cura, I tried to use "python cura.py" command, but error exist:

File "./Cura/cura.py", line 13, in <module> from Cura.util import profile

However,after I tried to use "python -v"command to see the version of python, and tried the "sudo find -name "cura.util" " command to search the cura.util file, and run the "python cura.py" command again, it worked!

So I wonder what's wrong with it and what's the correct way to start cura in Ubuntu. Thanks!
