setting up for Parallel port Tutoral Part 3
forget for now about a parallel port config if all you want to do is look at PP.
You can run PP in simulator mode to take a look at PP with no hardware.
The config information I supplied is a pathpilot config.
it was already in the ~/tmc/configs/tormach_lathe/ directory and supplied by tormach.
all I did was change my config_file.txt and run operator_login.sh with the sim config and pathpilot came right up for me
my Pathpilot is running fine in simulator mode. that is all I did to take a look at PP.
if you want to run PP with a non Tormach Config then you have to do magic on the files to make them work.

or fit a pci printer port card is an option
so long as it thinks a printer port exists then it will work .
that goes for lcnc as well as pathpilot .
Which begs the question...
Smgvbest, does your computer have a lpt port listed in its bios screens? I realize there is no physical port.
Thank you, this works .How do I add " charge pump " ?
