Cura Lulzbot 3D Printing Software
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Name :

Cura Lulzbot Software

Homepage:

https://www.lulzbot.com/learn/tutorials/cura-lulzbot-edition-installation-ubuntu

Why should this be included in the repository?

The reason I think we should implement this package is because lulzbot is one of the only 3D Printer manufacturers that is actually endorsed by the Free Software Foundation in-tune with their 'libre' philosophy for an opensource 3D Printing environment. It has mass adoption capabilities, and it readily available on Amazon etc... If package is created that will allow it to work with a click of a button in the Solus project center it will be phenomenal.

Is it Open Source :

YES

Link to source tarball/zip file

Oh my bad, all I know how to do is that website, I googled .tar.gz and there are some fedora forum links but nothing on the lulzbot website. I'll search more. Full Disclosure: total newb here with linux

I found a .deb which has the .tar stuff inside it

A deb isn't a tarball. Look at our package requests, it clearly specifies what's required.

hmm... it says "We require versioned tarballs, for example: "1.2.3.tar.gz"."

So under this link I found all the versions:
http://download.lulzbot.com/Software/Cura/Packages/

and then under each version if you install that .deb thingy it contains for instance

control.tar.gz
data.tar.gz
debian-binary

From my understanding you are looking for a curated list of all the version .tar.gz's however they only provide it in a list of debians. To be honest I don't even know the different. But I'll keep looking.

@bugsbunny88 They Don't provide a source tarball. This is as close as it gets
http://download.lulzbot.com/Software/Cura/Source/Cura_21.02/

If you want it included you might have to reach out to them and ask them to start doing versioned tar/zip files.

Thanks BearzR, I'll reach out to them today, they respond very fast and I'll see if we can get the ball rolling on this. Thank You.

DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

Come on guys. Usual suspects:

  • Homepage
  • GitHub
  • SourceForge
  • LaunchPad

Hi again, DataDrake thank you. I'm assuming the request is good to go then? I got an email from them here is what I received, please let me know if I can further help.

Here's a link to our current v21.02 source code directory:
http://download.lulzbot.com/Software/Cura/Source/Cura_21.02/
Here's a link to the public repository, I believe it mentions compiling a tarball there:

+1 for this. I also could really use this otherwise I can't use the Solus laptop to generate files for my 3d printer. I would personally use this often and so far I can not seem to find a flatpak or snap.

As I understand, what you want is (1) https://code.alephobjects.com/diffusion/CURA/ which is a fork of (2) https://github.com/daid/Cura but that was replaced by (3) https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura because the old code started to become a unmaintainable.

So you want (1) but aren't other distro's rather packaging (3) ?

@kyrios123 I will only accept patches for (3). They are the official upstream per: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cura_(software)

Thanks @DataDrake, that's what I thought.
I added child tasks with the missing dependencies I found to ease the follow up.

tyler4 added a comment.EditedAug 31 2017, 1:50 AM

I would prefer (3) as well, this originally was opened for (1) and to be honest any version of cura would be better than nothing although I would prefer (3) as well.

Yeah, I think we all agree on (3). I did ask because I was confused by the title, homepage and following discussion mixing everything that's why I did some researches.
(1) wouldn't pass the 2-distro rule anyway and (2) is dead.

All the packages are done, I am able to run the software on my machine.
Once the packages will be reviewed, someone with a compliant 3D printer will have to make sure it's working.
