Error „pin „halui.spindle.forward“ does not exist“ with PnCConf and LinuxCNC 2.8

06 Oct 2018 10:37 #118490 by decor82

i am really new to LinuxCNC and get a error when I try to start LinuxCNC with a config from PnCConf.

I am using a Mesa 7I76e Card and while I build the config with PnCConf I can move all 3 axis. But after I complete the wizard, I get the error, „pin „halui.spindle.forward“ does not exist“.

The LinuxCNC version is 2.8 from the buildbot repository.

I read something about halui.spindle.N.forward but I am not experienced enough to know what to do now.

Hope someone can point me to the right direction.

Best regards,

There was some work pushed into master lately regarding spindles.
I would bet this is the cause of your error.

I'll do some looking.

We have pushed a fix into master for this problem.
Please update your linuxcnc version. (or manually fix the names as shown before)

Thanks for the advice.

Changed halui.spindle.forward to halui.spindle.0.forward and all the other halui.spindle pins and the problem is solved. :)
