Gcode preview looks wrong in Ubuntu

Postby h3ct0r » Tue Dec 12, 2017 3:50 am

Hi,

My Gcode preview is very weird looking, is this normal? This happens with all gcode generated. An image of the preview is attached.

I'm running ideaMaker Ver. 2.6.0.925 on Linux Ubuntu 16.04, video hardware accelerated (Nvidia GeForce 930M).

Thanks!

May I ask your gcode file? To confirm whether it is due to graphic card or others.

Yes sure, the Gcode is on this link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Q9wh1h4oF3SBf4kB3wBhthutuF1CYteV

Thanks!

The gcode file shows properly on my computer.

Do you have such kind of problem on every model or only complex structure?

Please try this: https://www.geforce.com/drivers
Download the latest driver from nvidia's website. Then slice a test cube and check whether the preview works or not.

@Vicky@Raise3D, yes I'm using the latest drivers for Ubuntu (nvidia-384). I have other friends that have the same problem in Ubuntu too, the problem does not depend on the model complexity, it is always that way.

Another example using a simpler model:

What about the printing result? Or only the preview meets problem?

The printing results are great, the only problem is the preview!

I'm so sorry, but we haven't found out the root cause yet.

Great to know that I'm not the only one! :)
The same problem, and it looks it must be Ubuntu specific thing, not Unity (I'm KDE4 user, the same problem on two computers)

Also, interesting part, imported GCODE looks OK, only generated preview makes problems.

Still great to know that even with this Preview I can print with no problem (i was holding back a little as for now).

Also, there is a lot of libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile spam in terminal while running ideaMaker

Great software! :)

Same problem here, I generated the gcode of the 20mm_Calibration_box in windows and in linux and compared them, they looks the same. The problem seems to be in the preview window.
