OK, I have built a very nice CNC Router, have downloaded and installed LinuxCNC, programmed my machine, I think, now I want to use LinuxCNC.

WHERE are the step by step training or tutorials at??? How do I learn to use LinuxCNC??

Sorry if I am stupid, but I don't see the info I need.

Thanks for anyone's help, I truly appreciate it.

Bill

Thanks Tommy and John. This looks like a good place to start.

I have downloaded LinuxCNC via the web sites recommendation for installing LinuxCNC, but it DOES NOT recognize the
internet WIFI device I installed in the computer, which works fine with my Windows application on the same computer.

Any thoughts on how to fix this? Or can you recommend a WIFI device that it will recognize?


Thanks

Wireless dongles are notoriously flaky in Linux. Best bet to get something to work is often something older that's 2nd hand.
But the best option that will work 100% of the time is an Eithernet to wifi adapter.
Here is one. Not a recommendation or endorsement merely an example of one.
