Updating !.2.02 to 1.4.00 7Z Linux

As I understand it the search for updates does not work. I therefore attempted to delete 1.2.02 and install 1.4.00 7Z. All appears ok as I created a new Folder and extracted updated version to this. When I go into the folder and attempt to run the program using AppRun I am led to an Applications folder where I can click on the Lightburn Logo which starts lightburn however not the updated version. How do I overcome?
I have other problems with framing but thought this would be a good start.
Any assistance much appreciated

If you fill out your profile, we might be able to be of more assistance. I run Linux, some run Macs and still others have Windows based machines. From the title I assume some variation of Linux… I run Ubuntu.

You profile allows us to see what kind of machine and pc/os you are using.

Just a heads up…

I have mine in ~/ or my home directory …

When I upgrade, I rename the original Lightburn directory to something like Lightburn-x. Then extract the new version into my root directory.

Since you don’t modify/delete the LightBurn.desktop file, it should just run when you click on the icon wherever you have it…

I have two icons and two desktop files… One is beta the other is release.

Make sense?


Thanks will update prifile. Will rename Directory

How do I update my prifile?

Deleted and created a new folder with different name in Desktop. No difference.

What distro+release of Linux are you running?

Linux Mint 20.3 Una


From a terminal, try lsb_release to get a nice output of the machines os software…

jack@Kilo:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
Release: 22.04
Codename: jammy

It also formats nicely for posting… this is just copied and pasted from the line starting with Distributor…

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
Release: 22.04
Codename: jammy

Neat huh?

Glad you got it solved! Note that Linux Mint isn’t an officially supported Linux distro (Ubuntu 20.04LTS is our only one at the moment) - there can be issues with other releases. But, sounds like Rotary was the main culprit here.

Colin, I thank you for your assistance and advice. I have LB on three desktops. I have an iMac which runs nothing as I do not rate it as too many hang ups. I have two old HP machines that I changed to SSHD one works ok on Mint and I will leave for the time being. The second HP runs a small laser engraver. self made, giving framing problems etc and I will convert this to Ubuntu as suggested. I may well return with other problems. I am a 77 year old apprentice .enjoying all these challenges

Just quick update, total disaster. On one machine I managed to get Ubuntu loaded but unable to resolve resolution problems. On second machine I created a partition as I wished to retain Mint. Ubuntu has loaded and resolution ok but I cannot connect with "“Port failed to open - already in use?” Whatever i do cant resolve. In addition I may have erred with my password for Mint, as cannot load. Spent a bit if time with my iMac and it has run ok . Spent a lot of time with Ubuntu, achieving not a lot. If I coukd resolve the fail to connect I would be happy.

Edit Finally resolve the port failure by trying other USB ports…
