Hello Guys,

I just put together on 3/18/16 a fresh build of wheezy (2.7.4), using gmoccapy (1.5.6.1), and I checked to make sure the tool path display would move around with the touchscreen, and it did on friday, now today it doesn't work. I tried all the options in the dropdown box for the mouse button configuration in the hardware tab, and nothing works, it won't zoom, rotate or move the displayed tool path. The touchscreen is working just fine on the rest of the screen, just not the tool path.

Any thoughts?

Rick

The question is:

What has changed from friday to now?
Any system updates?

Hey Norbert,

I didn't do any updates, but I was all over the map trying to get rid of a RT delay fault I kept getting after I had gotten Gmoccapy up and running, and I installed SBackup on the machine so it will do a remote backup to my PC in the office.

The only thing that I really did was put in the grub file the "radeon.modeset=0" command, turned off the screensaver, and applied the "isolcpus=1" to knock down the latency.

I would not think that the backup utility would have anything to do with the touchscreen controlling movement of the toolplot??

Hallo Rick,

that was not easy, but I think I have found the strong behavior.

You are in lathe mode, aren't you?

Gremlin did handle lathe mode not correct and that leaded to no reaction. Additionally there where to bugs in mouse mode 4 and 6.
I fixed all that, so if you make a new pull and rebuild, than everything should work again.

If you do not run rip environment, download the attached file, rename it to be gremlin.py and copy it to /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ overwriting the existing file.

Please inform, if my patch did solve your problem.

Norbert
