Hi

I have recently moved to LinuxCNC and I would like to try gmoccapy.

If I change the DISPLAY = gmoccapy LinuxCNC will not start error screen.

If I launch LinuxCNC and choose gmoccapy I get the actual gmoccapy screen. After homing all axis, the motors do not move. Where as with axis, I can move my motors and router in X-Y-Z space.

How do I get gmoccapy to get the router moving my motors? I have searched the net for articles related to this issue but no one seems to have this problem.

Am I missing something or gmoccapy is just a simulation and not for actual routing?!

My guess is that the Gmoccapy configuration you are running is just a simulation. Try reading the manual for details how to switch the gui for your config to Gmoccapy. (I don't remember all the instructions off the top of my head.)

Hi KalKat,

no one will not even try to help with your information.

What error?

The simulation configurations will never move real hardware!!

Have you taken a look in the docu of gmoccapy?
Have you checked your ini and hal files?

Gmoccapy runs fine here and on about 400 machines around the world?

I do not have any errors, but gmoccapy with not move the motors.

Yes I read the article and followed it to my best of abilities, and it will not work will not move the motors.

Anyway I cant be bothered now as Axis stopped engaging my VFD and wasted hours to trouble shoot the new problem.

LinuxCNC it totally unstable and not really for me even though I was a programmer, hacker and systems analyst and senior security adviser in IT, I just cant be bothered with buggy software.

or the complete Folder of your mashine as a ZIP
then we can see what help you need

Why such negative attitude towards a guy that is new to linuxcnc? He has 3 posts.

KalKat, Linuxcnc is not really buggy software. There is some config issues obviously, when solved would be reliable.

What they mean is something is a rye with your configs. upload them here and we can help.

It is a bit daunting until you understand it a bit more.

Hang in there and you will get help here.

First part is YOUR opinion, and you have your reasons for that, but the rest of your statement is very fishy.
Again that is MY opinion. I have worked as a network admin for two of the biggest organisations in the world, started programing in assembler at 12, and again MY opinion is that Linuxcnc is a magnificent piece of software, at the same time it is extremely reliable as proven by over 20 machines running every day for several years.
When you need help, it would be advisable to at least give us some more info as with "it does not work" we can do nothing to help.
Regards.
