Trouble running Cura on new Ubuntu 18.04 install
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Ticket: 204,999

Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04

Log file: Awaiting on Customer response

Cura version: 3.6.8

Detailed Description: I was able to install Cura using the instructions on this page. I followed the instructions to install the "buster" version since I am running Bionic. Unfortunately, when I try to run it, I get a runtime error:

gmadrid@turncoat:~$ cura-lulzbot
/usr/share/cura-lulzbot/cura-lulzbot: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by /usr/share/cura-lulzbot/cura-lulzbot)

I have tried upgrading libc6, but it appears that 2.27 is the latest version for Bionic:

gmadrid@turncoat:~$ sudo apt install libc6

libc6 is already the newest version (2.27-3ubuntu1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Here are a couple of things that may be useful:

Had customer try HarlemSquirrel's response on code ticket T5835

Customer reply: HarlemSquirrel had a different problem relating to "readline" and not "libc6". I tried doing what he did with libc6, but I was unable to install the dpkg after downloading it. apt reported inconsistencies that would arise and refused to finish the installation.

I recently purchased a used Lulzbot mini, and I'm trying to install your
Cura software on my Ubuntu 18.04 system. I ensured that my system was up
to date, and followed the instructions on your website, but I get a
version mismatch in the glibc library. It appears that I'm not the only
one with the problem, as there's this posting on your message board
(I've posted my own follow-up).

I can probably fix this by building Cura from source, but I can't seem
to find the source anywhere. I see several (different) pointers to
various repositories, all of which look to be several years old, and
they don't seem to have the source code anyway. Cura is open-source,

Your help is appreciated, as I'd like to get an initial print running on
my printer this weekend if possible.
