I am running CAE Linux, which is an Ubuntu-based engineering build. I am also running the latest most up-to-date version of Ubuntu. Running Matter Control on this laptop is problematic. The software vanishes at random without any message or any event logging,
causing the printer to stop.
Sometimes I can finish a print, more often than not I waste a significant amount of material. Nothing else is running, just Matter Control. I have four gig of RAM on here, I don't see any signs of memory leak meaning I am not suddenly running out of memory. I suspect that the problem is the INTEL Graphic crap, however the Linux version doesn't seem to accept the force software rendering argument. I tried it and I still get random crashes.
Right now as it stands I cannot run Matter Control from this laptop which is a setback for us. I was told that MC was sufficiently stable under Linux to be considered reliable. This is not the case.
First step is overcoming the problem caused by the Intel chip-set. How do I force it like Windows? Second, where is the program logging events? In order to troubleshoot this I need a crash log or event log so I can figure out if this is my build, my laptop, or the software causing this.
