FYI, as I had issues with the normal appimage (bundled in this package), I created the cura-modern-appimage AUR package that seems to work better for me (and doesn't seem to require all the wayland and LD_PRELOAD hacks). If this package gets the modern image at some point, I'll deprecate my package.

Still does not work with x11. Also, should it be changed to the modern appimage? might let you get rid of the LD_PRELOAD.

  • does it really need a custom DL agent?
  • conflicts with cura-appimage-git is not needed
  • renaming source with to the same name is not needed

Just in case someone has the same problem:

Cura crashed for me with Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped) (I'm on wayland/sway). I was able to fix it by switching to the "linux-modern" appimage, which is provided by Cura since 5.1:

-    "${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.AppImage::${pkgver}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux.AppImage"
+    "${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.AppImage::${pkgver}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux-modern.AppImage"

And then updpkgsums / change sha256 to 3afc02e20938785f4ee0c925370659f5449c4c67e36ab7f4c617af8361476f32

Not sure if setting QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb should be part of the package since it's environment-specific. Anyway, incorporated it for now. Please, say so if it breaks your setup.

Confirmation that N0id workaround for wayland/sway works by setting QT_QPA_PLATFORMN=xcb in works as of 5.0.0-2

Just in case someone has the same problem running wayland/sway. I also had to set QT_QPA_PLATFORM to xcb. Fixed it via patching

First of all, thank you for the patches. Setting QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME is not needed as per And it's probably better to keep checksum for included file.

This patch rolls the workarounds from @ozz and @carlos.m into /usr/bin/cura:

I got the file dialogs to work by installing xdg-desktop-portal-gtk (I run XFCE). Then I have to run Cura like:

QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=xdgdesktopportal LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ Ultimaker-Cura-5.0.0-linux.AppImage

You may have to reset dbus (or reboot) after installing the xdg portal. See the Cura bug report here for more information.
