The driver is now integrated in 2.9 (master) from 2 days ago only.

Basically you only need to download this file : (untested wget command...)
cd your_config_directory
wget -O xhc-whb04b-6.hal https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/raw/master/src/hal/user_comps/xhc-whb04b-6/example-configuration.md

Edit your ini for adding
[HALUI]
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro0)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro1)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro2)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro3)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro4)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro4)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro6)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro4)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro8)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro9)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro10)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro11)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro12)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro13)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro14)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro15)
MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro16)

and add to HAL section (i think before POSTGUI_HALFILE)
HALFILE = xhc-whb04b-6.hal


For RUN IN PLACE ONLY :
sudo cp /home/pi/emc/debian/extras/lib/udev/rules.d/*.rules /etc/udev/rules.d
you need to adapt this command with your home directory name (replace /pi/) and the source folder name (replace/emc/)

Or if the rules file is missing you can try to create one and copy past the above code:
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d99-xhc-whb04b-6.rules
# xhc-whb04b-6 mpg pendant
ATTR{idProduct}=="eb93", ATTR{idVendor}=="10ce", MODE="666", OWNER="root", GROUP="plugdev"

Reboot computer before trying to use


Ps : maybee someone can add the needed stuff to stepconf and pncconf ??

Can you past the result or picture from

watch -n0.4 halcmd show pin whb.*


chmod +x is normally only needed with copy past binaries

i'm unsure but i hope a Run in place with sudo make setuid or a instal from buildbot do automatically the chmod +x

If you add confs to the udev you need to run:
udevadm control -R

to reload the confs and database.

you can do a autoreload for the XHC HAL
then you do not need to reboot or stop the machne
just press the Enable XHC and it comes back up
HOW to DO
MAKE a Coustom M-code that holds the loadup Command line
Like M188
#!/bin/bash
# file to reload XHC
halcmd loadusr -W xhc-hb04 -I myini.ini -H
exit 0

I suspect your knowledge is for xhc-hb04 and not for xhc-whb04b-6

I never need to disable/enable this driver pendant ???

-Is normal have delay (about 2/3 seconds) between the coordinates from computer to pendant?

-How can i remap macro buttons to for example macro1 turn on/off the flood?


-I have stepper motors and when moving the axis with the keyboard keys, it moves smooth but when moving with pendant it is not smoothing the machine vibrates.


-When starting linuxcnc (axis) with the keyboard i can move the machine every where, but if i move with the pendant i can't move to x+ / y+ or z+...... i have to do homing first.

- I think no, display are not really fast, but 2 to 3 seconds seem to be too high.

- for signal that need toggle you can do this with a standard macro button but you need to use toggle2nist
linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/toggle2nist.9.html
I have try and i'm not satified even adding a debounce
linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/debounce.9.html
This is the reason for hardcoded some enhanced function like the mist/flood/lube

You can remove mist/flood/lube config (and other hardcoded function) and use regular macro button for what you want.
You can't use enhanced function with standard macro button without external trick or change source code and compiling.


- Have you tried Step/continuous mode ? different speed ? (i'm not expert but is your acceleration settings not too high ?)

- i never use keyboard for jog and never use another pendant so i can't confirm if this is normal or not.



I'm not the first authors and i don't know/understand 100% of the code... I have only rework some stuff and add more functionality (original one is from Rubien Raoul you can found the code inside Machinekit)



I'm sure more work can be done for clarifying/correcting some parts of the code.
