I run Slic3r Version 1.41.0+linux64 and i can not select the correct printer.

Original Prusa i3 MK2 Multi Material 2.0 or Original Prusa i3 MK3 MMU2 is not available.

There is only “Original Prusa i3 MK2 MultiMaterial” with only 4 Filaments to set up. Can you fix this?

I had the same thing (except I’m running Windows), had to go to Configuration->Configuration Wizard and then select the MK3 with MMU2.0 checkbox. Then it showed up in the dropdown.

Eric Greenberg -

Thank you! This was the solution!

Mathias Mettauer -

Hi guys, yes it needs to be added via the Configuration Wizard. I've updated the guide.

Jakub Dolezal -

And How can I add “Original Prusa i3 MK2.5 Multi Material 2.0“ when it is not in

Configuration->Configuration Assistant (probably “Assistant” is described “Wizard”)

I run Slic3r Version 1.41.0+linux64 too.

Thanks,

Lukas
