install flash-print with: yaourt --m-arg --skipinteg flashprint ##skips integrity check in packagebuild.

edit the packagebuild and change these lines. "pkgver=3.26.0" "source=("${pkgname}-${pkgver}_amd64.deb::"

it should build the latest flashprint and install it.

to fix the GFX issue, follow this from google groups.!topic/flashforge/_uM5s3cAeQk copied here in-case it disappears,

FlashForge support basically replied that they only support Ubuntu 16.04

I put it to them that Ubuntu 18.04 is due any day now and will ship with Qt     5.9.5 which will likely be upgraded to 5.10.1 (as Debian Testing is) and am     awaiting their feedback, they said they'd ask their developers.

In the meantime I've come up with a workaround. Download and install this     (as non-root) and ensure you select to install "Desktop gcc 64-bit":


Copy the Qt5.9.5/5.9.5/gcc_64/lib directory to somewhere, I chose     /opt/qt595/lib, you don't need anything else.

Modify /usr/share/applications/FlashPrint.desktop to add the     $LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to the Exec line (will need re-doing if you upgrade     FlashPrint):

[Desktop Entry]
Name=FlashForge 3D Printer Control Software
Exec=env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/qt595/lib /usr/share/FlashPrint/FlashPrint

Then when you run FlashPrint using the desktop file (e.g. from Gnome) it will use that version of Qt instead of the system one.

Of course if you run FlashPrint from the console it will use the system Qt and not work, to fix that run:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/qt595/lib ; /usr/share/FlashPrint/FlashPrint

Remember that these libs won't get updated with the rest of your OS.

Don't forget to run the .run you need to make it executable!!!

once you've done that I copied the lib to my home directory and added this to the desktop launcher.

"env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/luke/Documents/lib /usr/bin/flashprint" I'm using "env" instead of "export" because I get a runtime error when launching flash-print.

that should get you a fully updated flashprint 3.26.0 and working with no issues.

Hello, any chance of updating this package soon, it's a couple versions behind.

@Xbetas I had the same issue, but your solution worked well. Thanks.

I had the same problem with a white screen. I fixed it by getting an older version of qt (ver 5.6.3 worked for me)

then i used "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/new/libraries/ flashprint" to run it.

i hope it helps :)

It installs now but when I run flashprint I just get a white screen. This happens on a machine running an Nvidia card and also a different machine running an AMD card. But it installs and runs ok on my laptop running Ubuntu.

Please fix.
