would appreciate anyone that can help, as i wanted to use this pi top for my 3D printer.
I looked up "SLIC3R install on linux" and got the following answer from "manual.slic3r.org/getting-slic3r/getting-slic3r" on Gargle search
If you were not already aware, Raspbian and Pi-TOP OS are sub species or flavours of Linux and the Genus of Debian. Somebody will help with a further refinement such as a derivative of UBUNTU but I am not sure and most likely biased because I have worked exclusively with the Debian UBUNTU variants of Mint, XFCE and Mate since they offer excellent long term versions of WinXP replacements turning old and tired PCs into excellent machines for free! Now I have joined the Pi-TOP clan to start just as everybody else to learn a little more about building with computers. Please do keep asking questions!
Extract the archive to a folder of your choosing. Either: Start Slic3r directly by running the Slic3r executable, found in the bin directory, or. Install Slic3r by running the do-install executable, also found in the bin folder.
Hi, sorry all i was busy with my study and hope someone can help, i try to download ubunta mate but to no valid, can someone help on this?
Hi any reason for downloading UBUNTU Mate? eg other versions of UBUNTU are much leaner, have a look at the resources needed to support XFCE instead of Mate? A PC with XFCE will run where Mate will not is a good indication of the advantages? But Raspbian is a stripped down version of Debian because the available resources are far less than with a PC and as stated in an earlier message, the processor and support electronics are all very different to the Intel counterparts for a standard PC. Indeed the code included with Raspbian addresses these differences directly. Trying to download incompatible programs brings up a varrety of error messages both as a warning and as a protective response to your own system. A practical lesson that I think any discerning student will experience?
According to various tests and report Ubuntu MATE runs fairly smoothly on Bothe RaspberryPI2 and 3 - and very snappy on an overclocked Pi3 - go go go !!
