Hi,

Upon starting PrusaSlicer AppImage on my XUbuntu 18.04 ( 64 bit ) system, the program crashes with the followin error message:

(prusa-slicer:13962): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 16:37:33.170: g_signal_handlers_unblock_matched: assertion 'G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::filesystem::filesystem_error'
what(): boost::filesystem::space: No such file or directory: "/media/Backup"
Aborted (core dumped)

Directory '/media/Backup' is where I mount an external HDD for backups ( obvioiusly 😉

If the media is mounted then PrusaSlicer opens without problems.

Same error occurs with versions 2.2.0,  2.3.0-alpha1 and 2.3.0-alpha3. ( I did not test alpha2 but I believe the error exitsts also in that version )

I have an MK3S+​ on order and would like to familiarize with PrusaSlicer before the printer arrives. Of course I can mount the medeia and get slicer started but IMHO the program should not care about unmounted filesystems that have nothing to do with slicing...

BR, Kari
