Home switches not "seen" by linuxCNC
Also, I am completely lost in the Linux O.S. if a have to install a tool or something I will need a step by step. Im learning, but its a slow curve.

Get into the hal file and tweak from there.
Just a thought
I have, thats when i found my home switches not functioning. I clicked home all and my Z hit the switch and continued in the same direction.
I dont like to, but i am running it with the home switches unused right now and just manually calling home in a near home position. and zeroing my DROs in that position in case for any reason i loose position and need to continue a program.]
So when using Ptest, your e-stop works but limit switches do not, right?
1. on the BOB one the right side there is a jumper for setting inputs other than 2-9 as pull up or pull down, does it have a jumper in place, if it does move it to the other place and test again.
2. if that does not work, get a short piece of wire, disconnect the switches, start ptest and short the input 12, 13, 14 to the GND on the BOB.
If all this fails, disconnect the DB25 cable from BOB, take a small screw driver and find pins 10,11,12,13,15 on the port, they are vritten inside near the pins, while the ptest is on, short each of those pins to the metal shielding.
