3D printing on Linux

I've got a Makerbot dual-extruder clone from CTC.  I've just got it out for the first time since re-installed Ubuntu on my laptop, version 17.04 / zesty.

What do Linux users use to drive printers like this these days?  I used to use Makerware, but it seems that's not even close to usable on zesty.  So then I tried replicatorg - but the download link there is to Google code and Google code closed its doors some time ago.

Have people moved on to something else?  Or is the 3D printer software ecosystem slowly dying?
