Cura doesn't load even simple stl files, and has no log


#1

Hello!

i wanted to give cura a run, installed it through the packet manager, and got something running.
since i am in the process of assembling a 3D printer, i needed some calibration designs, that i downloaded from thingieverse…

there you have a small 50x50 turret to calibrate the printer…
its really just a 3D rectangle (name in english eludes me ) just to see if the head touches the bed…

well, the package installed cura can’t load it, fails with invalid file…
i wanted to look at the log to see what went wrong… no log…
so looks like some rights problem there, since a downloaded version of cura hadn’t that problem , (there the problem was different… i can start it from the files decompactor, but i don’t know how to install it…

so if anybody has a fix for this?

thanks in advance

Might run into that problem, too - as i’m assembling a printer myself, too. If something should come up, i’ll let you know - although it’ll probably take 2, 3, 4 more days before getting to it.
