Common Problems

If you receive the following error message when launching Cura from Terminal, or nothing happens when you launch Cura through the GUI, do this:

Error message: /usr/share/cura-lulzbot/cura-lulzbot: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by /usr/share/cura-lulzbot/cura-lulzbot)

Solution: In terminal, run the command "sudo apt remove -y cura-lulzbot && sudo apt install -y cura-lulzbot=3.2.32" (without quotes) .

If you cannot save a profile in Cura, make sure you own all the files/directories in your home folder. We had this issue when someone ran it using sudo.

Solution: sudo chmod -R unallocatedspace:unallocatedspace ~/
