This needs a bit of background. I have been printing using cura-lulzbot edition for couple of years printing from SD cards. I've been running cura on a Linux mint 19.1 system to slice and generate gcode. Recently, there was an update to Cura that broke it (it is requiring a newer version of glibc.) I have reported this issue, but it does not look like a fix is coming soon. I attempted to install slic3r as a work around, but that just core dumps on me.
Needing a means of slicing, I ordered a raspberry pi 3 B+ and installed OctoPi. Only to find that in order to get it to slice, one must run cura on a different machine and export its .ini file.
Given that I can't currently run cura on another machine, I am stuck.
I was under the impression that OctoPi included a complete version of cura, and I would be able to change the settings, and download new firmware using it. I would adjust the settings pretty much every time I printed depending on how strong and how detailed I needed the print to be.
Have I completely misunderstood what the slicing capability of OctoPi is?
Is there a way I can get this set up to work?
At the very least, I need a cura profile for the Taz6 for NGEN plastic.
I'm a little worried that the latest version of Cura uses new commands in the gcode that were added in the latest firmware for the Taz6, so I'll need to be able to update the firmware as well.
