Just I'm going to check it. I fit works in the simulator, I will check on my machine.

Also tell me which help you need. This kind of work really is very nice for me.

First of all, help in testing current subroutines and creating new subroutines... it can be either some algorithms or code itself.

Also there are some unsolved problems with GUI - axis always steels the focus from any forms. So we have to use mouse regularly to get focus back to Features.

Still not working. I got that (I0'm using LinuxCNC 2.5.3...which version are you suing...selfcompiled?):

I'm not sure, but probably latest sim version from buildbot.
Axis says 2.6.0-pre .....

Have you made all the changes to files mentioned in readme?

By the way can you give whole output or try to run linuxcnc from console there could be some more debug information....

Yes, I did all steps you told on the README.md. It can run standalone, but it still fails when I try to load inside. Had you try to install a new virtual machine from zero (like me) and to try to reinstall it?
For example: package python-lxml is required, but it is not installed by default on linuxcnc machine.
I'm going to reinstall from zero de virtual machine (one of the good points of a virtual machine), and to install all required stuff to compile linuxcnc.

In the other hand, when I launch it in a standalone window, how is working?
I select hole-probe, then I put my paramters, and then it generates a XML file. What must I do with the file?

Nope... in fact python-lxml usually goes with inkscape so I have had it already :)

Just try to press refresh it should update Gcode in axis. Or if you want to get gcode - press "save as"

Save - saves an XML - that is used to save treestore from features - this xmls can be imported back later into Features.
Save as - generates Gcode.

For example, to search a hole center, is it possible to launch directly pressing one button, or you must save the g-code and then, launche the g-code?
