Posted · Cura dev environment problem on OS X 10.8.5


I'm on OS X 10.8.5 and I'm going to develop some widgets with wxPython.

Built and installed everything explained on https://github.com/daid/Cura

when I run


pythonw -m Cura.cura

I get this exception

self = super(PowerSourcesNotificationsObserver, self).init()
AttributeError: 'super' object has no attribute 'init'

How can I fix this?

    This is a problem with the version of the python packages you are using...

    It is a nightmare to have a consistent set of packages -- look at http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/7577-cura-mac-os-x-sources-compil/, I have something running fine on Maveriks (should work on the Lions a s well)

    Thanks Amedee,

    I've managed to successfully run Cura on my virtualenv by following the GOLD thread above. :-P

    I will also try to package by downgrading what's listed there.

    You've really saved me many hours ... and headaches!

    A rant about operating system is not opportune and does not help anybody -- in particular this issue is more about a mess in the python bindings dependencies than anything else.

    Let's continue to work on this as a community, making Cura a slicer of choice whatever the platform the end user wants to use.

    Note that the above problem seems to relate to pyobjc, not to Cura.

    I cannot really provide you with much assistance here. It works on our Mac build machine, not sure why. But as Nallath already pointed out (in a not so friendly way), developing on a Mac is tricky, we try to touch the build machine as little as possible to make sure the build environment does not break.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
