Installing on Debian

Post by LittleGrnMan » 18 Jul 2020, 09:34

I'm running Debian Streach, I'm new to Linux but love it. I've downloaded KISSlicer v2 and un-zipped the archive. But the resulting output is a file that I don't know what it is or what to do with it. Is it a flatpack, snap, appImage, deb package? How do I install it from there? I know this is not part of this forum but could anyone tell me how to identify a file like this with no extension? Any help will be used. Before you give me too much grief I'm much better with CAD, lol. :?: Thanks for your time.

Open a terminal window.
chmod +x [where-ever-you-installed]/KISSlicer
[where-ever-you-installed]/KISSlicer & <<<< this should work.

For a desktop application launcher create a file like this:
(You need root privileges to create/modify in /usr/share/applications/,
or ~/.local/share/applications/ for just yourself)

$ cat /usr/share/applications/kisslicer-1.6.3.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=KISSlicer-1.6.3
GenericName=KISSlicer G-Code Generator
Comment=Prepare 3D Models for printing
Keywords=3d;3dprinting;host;
Icon=/opt/KISSlicer/1.6.3/KISSlicer.png
Exec=/opt/KISSlicer/1.6.3/KISSlicer %F
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
Categories=Utility;Graphics;3DGraphics
MimeType=model/stl;application/sla;text/x-gcode;
