Cura 4.13.0 crashing

A few days ago the latest version of cura in manjaro’s repository was 4.12, which less buggy, but still a pain to use it.

The 4.12 version had no materials and in case you wanted to rotate your print with the “select the face” rotate feature, it would simply crash. I wanted the latest version anyway, so I downloaded the AppImage from cura website, chmod-ed it to execute with chmod +x cura.AppImage and executed it. It instantly gave me a crash report every time it finished loading all the resources. The only thing you could do was to send report or close, those buttons closing cura, making it unusable. The only thing I could do about it was to stick with 1.12 and install muanually the materials.

I updated to cura 4.13.0 from the official manjaro repos but still the same thing as the AppImage. I can’t tell if I did something wrong since all I did was to install cura with sudo pacman -S cura command. I applied the reinstall approach too which didn’t solve my situation.

Here the logs:

There is also no manjaro wiki to explain about installing something else or configuring it manually. Can’t tell what to do.
