you will need to start from a terminal, may even be needed to start from a rip-environment!

Please google for the dependencies, I am out of home now!

Ok thx

No problem Norbert, I'll do that. ( My time for cnc is also less then wished;-) )
I only do not understand what is the "lcnc" specific part, or otherwise expressed if i would destroy dependencies when i do additional install's / adjustments.

Will have a read sbout the ideas behind glade.
Mike

P.S.
Just saw that there is a description in the lcnc doc for that feature.
Sorry, have never realised that part. Will learn it know.

Rodw ???

I do not understand.
I can start Glade from menu.
But when i just load fx. gmoccapy.glade i get the error message:
»/usr/share/gmoccapy/gmoccapy.glade« konnte nicht gespeichert werden.
Die folgenden benötigten Kataloge sind nicht verfügbar: gladevcp
(Translated: can not be saved, as catalog gladevcp not available) ...
Strange for me as i do not try to save, i only opened the file.

I suspect that i have to set some kind of path or library???
Can you please give me a hint.

PS.
I have no idea about the rip concept... I just use plain install based on iso plus upgrades.
That way lcnc works for me since mabe 99.

@Mike,

Do "Rip environment" will not alway's work. I think that is one problem.
I have seen this problem before by myself.

If you instal the latest version ofl linuxcnc with the buildbot secundairy glade will work.
Install it with the syntapic install manager on your desktop menu.

You will see that glade has the library's for linuxcnc. In total it will be 3 packages that has to be installed.

Save your work before installing. The update code in ini is changed also. If there is a problem, let it know.

lcnc


Lathe cnc?

RIP stands for run in place
Its usually used when you have compiled from source but have not built the deb packages to install all of the menus etc
In this case the code usually ends up being in ~/linuxcnc-dev and you need to run a script from the command line to set all of the environment variables up before running LinuxCNC from that directory instead of buried in the bowels of Linux somewhere (as is the case with a deb install).

IN my experience if you don't run the script, glade does not run correctly and can even overwrite your GUI windows with invalid data if you open them.

The GLADE editor requires the path to the library of gladevcp widgets or it complains.
Usually this gets taken care of by the RIP environment setting and launching from a terminal.
When using an installed version of linuxcnc one must set the environment variable manually.

Since I seldom install linuxcnc I am having difficulty showing an example as i don't know where the files are installed in the system nor have i actually done this manually (I always use RIP)

Thx Chris and Rod
I knew the abreviation but not the mechanism of rip.
I think i will not convert to the dark side, and start compileing. ;-)

But the path story seems in my reach sind I'll try that.
Lcnc and glade is a bit square from normal industrial automation or ict equipment worl, but i like it.
