Hi,
Like the Gmoccapy Plasma a lot.
"The plasma screen has been included in the latest master branch. It can be found under the sim directory. You will be required to copy all the relevant files to your config. More on this later.

hence, I update from 2.5.4 to 2.6.7
But I can't seem to find the folder."
The best I get to is loading the Gmoccapy

Display = gmoccapy


The thread on gmoccapy is 120 pages.... it is too overwhelming for me.
Most appreciate if you could point me the right way?

Regards

Ken

Hi

You have 2.6 not the latest master

Download this
linuxcnc.org/dists/lucid/2.7-rtai/source...nc_2.7.0~pre6.tar.gz

The files you want are in /build/configs/sim/gmoccapy/gmoccapy-plasma

You need to extract the contents to somewhere, say your home dir, so now you have
~/build

Then launch from a terminal thus
linuxcnc ~/build/configs/sim/gmoccapy/gmoccapy_plasma/gmocapy_plasma.ini

When you have played with it, you can copy the content into a config in your ~/linuxcnc/configs dir, but you will need to copy the files and dirs that are symlinked into it as well

What is it you don't understand?

Place the tarball in your home dir, extract its contents to the home dir
www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-open-a-tar-gz-file-in-linux-unix/

Then run linuxcnc as detailed.

I have no specific knowledge regards gmoccapy, I don't use it and dont have a plasma cutter.

This is just to run the sim, whatever that does.

Hi,
Got the tar.gz extracted to ~/build folder
launch linuxcnc from terminal with
linuxcnc ~/build/configs/sim/gmoccapy/gmoccapy_plasma/gmoccapy_plasma.ini
*ps, there is a typo, gmoccapy.ini with double C

then I get the followings

Machine configuration directory is 'home/kilat/build/configs/sim/gmoccapy/gmoccapy_plasma'
Machine configuration file
Starting LinuxCNC.....
Could not open 'core_sim.hal'
shutting down and cleaning up LinuxCNC...
LinuxCNC terminated with an error. you can find more info in the log: /home/kilat/linuxcnc_debug.txt

IS this related to symlink?

Yes,

The files symlinked to are in other directories.
Don't know why you are not finding them.

I will do a config with everything on one folder in a while and post it.
Will be a lot easier than trying to debug across half the planet

Hi

Put this folder in your ~/linuxcnc/configs folder

You need to check you have
python-vte
and
python-gst0.1

After that it should run, just select from the usual pickconfig menu when starting linuxcnc
