Debian 10

Debian 11 (Compatible with Focal, Mint 20+)

Once downloaded, in a terminal navigate to the directory containing the file (usually ~/Downloads by default) and send the following command:

sudo apt install ./cura-lulzbot-[version number - Debian version]-Linux.deb

If this is your first time installing Cura LulzBot Edition on your Linux machine, please additionally run the following commands to ensure you are able to use the USB functionality of the software:

sudo usermod -a -G tty $USER
sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER

​These commands simply add your current user to the tty/dialout groups, allowing for USB functionality. Sign out and sign back in for them to take effect.

That's it! Cura LulzBot Edition is setup and ready to use.

Please note: Cura LE is currently only available for Debian-based Linux distributions.
 We hope to add compatability with more distros in the future
