gmoccapy was created by thor44
I just copied and pasted the gmoccapy files to my current config to run gmoccapy and everything went well I start gmoccapy, click on the e-stop, turn the machine on, and then maximize the screen and now every time I click anywhere, on a blank part of the screen or a button the screen moves up and down. Does any one know why this would happen?

Yes it seems to be a bug in GTK... try fullscreen or change your screen resolution

GTK is the toolkit used to make the basic buttons. labels and such (widgets).
it's a library outside of linuxcnc's control.

What resolution are you using?
did you try fullscreen which is not the same as maximised.

I am using 1280x800 screen resolution. I am using a laptop for testing purposes, could that be the problem? I think I am using full screen but I'm not sure, how would I know?

if you can see anything beside gmoccapy then you are not in fullscreen, it is selected in gmoccapy's options page.
does it move side to side or up and down?
The docs say Gmoccapy requires 979x750 (unless using a optional gladevcp side panel), so you should be good.

it moves up and down. I have looked all over for the options page and can't find it, any idea where it is? If I run in minimized it does not seem to be a problem I just see the bottom of the screen only in maximized do I get this problem.

see the button with crossed tools on the right? click it
The unlock code is 123

Then see on the top left 'main window' and under it 'start at maximised'?
that's how. (it may be tricky to click it but you can)

I see, I too have this problem - I had already full screened it.

It kills me how simple some problems are to solve.

In axis there is a .hal file that specifies the pin outs for the parallel port and in gmoccapy I don't see that how does it know were to send and receive signals?

There is one (usually more) for gmoccapy ( or any other screen) there somewhere.
Are you using the sim example?

it may be one directory higher - called core_sim.hal, spindle_sim.hal simulated_home.hal
and gmoccapy_postgui.hal
