Does anything else work?
Can you run Axis using one off the sim configurations?

Well... I have found that running the latency test from the dropdown menu will not do anything even if running it from the command line works all day long.
I had not treid to actually run Axis and I just tried. Adter I select a configuration I am supposed to click "OK". The problem is either I am going blind or I can't see any "OK" anywhere.
I am starting to get a feeling that something went wrong during the creation or install of the LiveCD.
If I don't get any other suggestions I have already created a new CD using the Linux box rather than Win. I will just reinstall from scratch and see what happens. In the original install I did not run the MD5SUM. This time around I have already checked the fresh down load of the iso and it is correct. I am in the process of figuring out how to check the actuall CD.
Being a newbie at Linuc makes every single step a PITA but I will get there.
Thanks
Tony

I think you have a graphics problem.

When you installed did you select use entire hard drive? I've ran across a time when I selected to run side by side on a cramped drive that it got fouled up iirc.

Do you have the latest LiveCD? the file name should be ubuntu-10.04-linuxcnc3-i386.iso (note the 3 after linuxcnc).

Hi

I have found that running the latency test from the dropdown menu will not do anything even if running it from the command line works all day long.

What I suspect you are doing is running the latency test from the realtime testsuite that I showed you and not the one from Linuxcnc

Open a terminal and type latency-test and if you cannot run it from the menu, it should not run from there, but it will give you error messages to say why.
Post them here.

Then from the terminal type emc and with a mouse highlight axis from the sim section.
Then press [Enter] on the keyboard, linuxcnc should start with that config.
If you get errors post them.

As you are not displaying widgets (no buttons on config chooser and blank window with parport tester) I am wondering if python is installed properly ( or maybe bwidgets.)

regards

As it turns out after I changed to "Vesa" drivers it all now works as advertised, not only the parallel port tester, but the latency test from the drop down menu and now when I start LinuxCNC I do have the "OK" button.
Thank you so much to everybody that helped.
have a great week end
Tony
