Thanks to tommylights quick and easy install procedure, I have LINUXCNC - 2.9.0-pre0-2118-g0c8cdaaf1 running on Debian Buster.
I'm also using Qtdragon's excellent GUI running a Gantry. Now , I'm having a few issues as listed :
1. In Qtdragon, I can home all axes just fine , individually or together (home all). But , when one axis is homing and I press home for another axis, the first axis ignores the home/limit switch and crashes into the hard stop.
2.I can't get the probe screen activated.
3. Calibration on the Settings page does not bring up the window.
4. Not related to Qtdragon, but my XHC-HB04 wireless MPG does very slow Accel and Decel when moving an axis. How or where can I steepen the bell curve for axis movement ?
Thanks ,

I just pushed the fix for the calibration button - it may take some time to run through buildbot before being able to update.

probe screen - did you connect all the HAL pins?
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/gui/qtdragon.html#_hal_pins

homing - I'll look into deeper

You also haven't set the path for the basic probe subroutines.
( this sample isn't right for an installed version - you will need to find the path to this folder though)
[RS274NGC]
SUBROUTINE_PATH = ../../../../nc_files/probe/basic_probe/macros

Thanks for the reply bbsr_5a,
My xhc hb04 hal is in the main hal attached above. I will move it to postgui as you say and try it. All functions work, just that axis movement startup and stopping is very slow.

Hello,
Sorry, I've not got to testing for the probe and MPG. Meanwhile, got a potentiometer for Feed override working(Axis). But, here is my problem.

In, Qtdragon, when I change to MODE 1 for the MESA 7i76e in my .INI . The four pins don't change to Analog. They stay as I/O. (INI &HAL in first post above).
where as the same INI in AXIS does switch the pins over. Any help is welcome.
Thanks.

Have you set the smart-serial software mode correctly? (loadrt hm2_hm2_eth .... sserial_port_0="200xxxxx" or similar)

You would need to change
sserial_port_0=00xxxx
to
sserial_port_0=20xxxx
or
sserial_port_0=10xxxx

to get access to the 7I76E analog inputs

Hi Aciera,
Thanks for the response.
Yes, I have the same INI with sserial set to 1 , that works in AXIS and in HAL meter I see the ANALOG0 inputs. But, in QTdragon, it stays as a I/O.
And I have no errors.

I apologize. I clearly need to read more carefully. :blush:
