I'm running S3D on Linux, so I would like to attach another related request to it.
It would be nice if you could easily select the SD card from within the "save as..." dialog. At the moment, I have to browse to /media/<username>/<card identifier>. There is no shortcut for it.

In Cura, it's even simpler: If you insert an SD card, a button appears, which, when pressed, instantly saves the file to the SD-card. And then there's another button to eject it. Personally I think, the first one goes too far.

As a workaround, you could create a symlink.

You can also label your sdcards. Under ubuntu 14.04, I did this:

Code: Select all

echo mtools_skip_check=1 >> ~/.mtoolsrc
sudo umount /dev/sdc1
sudo mlabel -i /dev/sdc1 -s ::MYNAME
(assuming that your sdcard is /dev/sdc1). Then the sdcard shows up as /media/username/MYNAME

You could then create a symlink from your home directory to the media directory:

Code: Select all

ln -s /media/USERNAME/MYNAME ~/MYNAME
If you name your symlinks with appropriate leading character, then they would even show up at the beginning of the list.

Good Idea, I'll try that! Thanks!

But what I do as a workaround is to just go back into 'save to file' and eject from there.

I am a Windows user. How does this help me?

I would prefer having an option in S3D.

To be frank I would like a card written correctly message - the software validated whats been written says its good and then gives you the option to eject.
