MatterControl 1.7.0 on Linux - Can't open a file to load - No file dialog
Hi, Just installed MatterControl onto a Linux machine I have for printing. Have been using RepetierHost & Slic3r previously.
Installed all ok, up and running, printed calibration cube, which was showing after install, as a test, all good.
Went to add another object into the queue with any of the Add buttons for menu drop down and no dialog appears to allow the selection of a file.
Run as user or as root, same issue (thought it might have been a perms issue top open the dialog).
Version installed is 1.7.0 on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS.
Any help would be gratefully received.
I installed it, and it straight away said there is an update to install... :?
Still not giving me a file dialogue, but I've been having some other issues, so I've not tried very hard yet.
It is not the latest "official" version, so it will think there is an update available. Do not install the update.
What distro are you on and what desktop environment are you using?
OK, have re-installed, but still no joy.
I'm on Mint 18 Cinnamon, but I think I may move to Mint 17: 18 seems full of problems.
I just tried it in a completely fresh Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon VM and it works fine. What do you get when you run
mono --version? If you install the gtk-sharp2 package, does that help?
I had the same problem at Mint 18.2. Solved with
sudo apt-get install gtk-sharp2
Thanks for the hint.
Ok. I will add that as a dependency to the package and make an official release.
Apologies again for the delay. I have it installed and am now able to open a file dialogue, but I am unable to log in: the login window sits indefinitely on "Please Wait. Signing in."
Run through a terminal, it is saying: "Web exception occurred. Status code: SendFailure"
In case this helps:
~ $ mono --version

That is a VERY old version of Mono. MatterControl does not support Mono versions before 4.4. There are instructions for upgrading on the wiki.
