Ncurses? was created by jmr
Hi,
The ncurses library is required for compilation (or listed as dependency), but does it get used anywhere? Is or was there ever some kind of an interface? For DRO with MDI and siple load/run operations it would consume a lot less resources when used in normal black tty without X. I see use for that. I tried some searching but no real results. Everyone seems to be heading in the bulky-X-touchscreen way, I may be a bit crazy...
Is there something I could look at and try to make it work?

Hi Marian,

Please tell more info in the future about your system you are working on. Now i am guessing .....

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ncurses

www.ostechnix.com/how-to-install-ncurses-library-in-linux/
In terminal type :
sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev

The ncurses library is required for compilation (or listed as dependency)

Okey i think now you can do the installation.

Ok, Maybe the question is not very visible. It is not how to get ncurses working. I have slackware and it is there by default.

The question is in GUIs because I am looking for ncurses interface for linuxcnc. Or any other ascii-graphical console interface?

If it is a depencency, then what does use it?

The dependency is keystick

I run
ldd `which keystick`
on my stretch install and ncurses came up.

linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/gui/keystick.html

Nah not crazy....fellow Slacker here, That Touchscreen, hmmm well I best not comment on it, other than to say there is something a bit fishy.

keystick has been removed in master (due to lack of motivation to port it to Joint/Axis). I would love to see it ported, or maybe have another console based LCNC UI developed. I started on an Ncurses one a while back but it did not go anywhere. I think there are still many applications were such a GUI would be useful ...

Cheers,
Kurt

woow... I did not get a reply notification, and expected this topic to just have "dieded".
Thanks for that. I will definitely look into it.

EDIT: Hey, I may have not the latest source but there is emclcd.cc and that may have some example C code. Otherwise, do You know of any other data useful for updating and expanding the keystick, a summary of changes after 2.6 or long changelog and lots of code reading is all that is?
