Hello, there seemes to be a translation error (probably a matrix scaleing error) in Axis testing 20060302. (I run metric setup) The white print is alot bigger than the red print.
A free one-user AXIS license to the person who sends me a .ini and a .ngc that reproduce that problem....
can tehy be empty ?
It seems unlikely that empty files will reproduce the problem
ok, then keep your one-user AXIS licence :)
joke aside, I'll ask chinamill if I'll see him around
does anonymous cvs work for anyone?
I lost the apt command that installs the dependencies for emc2 compile.
apt-get build-dep emc2
it's also in the apt-get manpage for next time
* alex_joni is tired..
I mean really tired..
you said that yesterday too ... you must be working hard lately.
well, it's 6PM, and I'm still at work again :)
but that's kinda ok
what bugs me is anon CVS
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from cvs.sourceforge.net: M -!- Client or Server timeout occurred!
new emc2-axis package in the ubuntu repository
cradek: btw, what did I break?
you said earlier I broke something touching interp
and you needed to redo axis
well.. make a new package
you added a canon call
we have to update the canon in axis when that api changes
no big deal at all
I see.. ok
[16:12:27] <alex_joni> http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/emc/
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /viewcvs.py/emc/.
Reason: Error reading from remote server
* alex_joni prods cradek
yes, you ;)
I have something to ask of you ..
can you look at wiki.linuxcnc.org and tell me if it's any better?
I like that table organization, I think we've needed a "table of contents" for a while
how about the CSS?
why are some things orange and some blue?
I like the white background better
external links are blue
one of the odd things about our wiki is how every page has the title at the top twice (sometimes with different spacing)
no, I guess it's a title
so.. bottomline, any better?
about the css: I don't really like the pastel colors.
about the table of contents: yes, much better
can you get rid of the huge title at the top?
maybe the top of the page could say EMC KnowledgeBase: CurrentPage [penguin]
it would help if that was at the top
* alex_joni looks
better like this?
yes, that helps
yay,managed to center that table
that was hard ;)
now if you would just fix the colors :-)
how about blue and maybe ubuntu brown
let me get you a color number
* alex_joni waits
I chose the red because it's the same one like on the future linuxcnc.org page
is that brown I think
they use it next to black and it seems to look ok
I'm bad at choosing colors.
it's all brown now
is it better?
cradek: if you feel like it you can change the css yourself
it's in /home/groups/e/em/emc/htdocs/template.css
chinamill: jepler asked if you can provide an ini and ngc file that produce the bug you mentioned today
where shall I post? the wiki? and then paste the link here?
link here if you can
or use pastebin.com or any other paste tool out there
I reproduced the problem guys
should have a fix soon
chinamill: you should always place g21 at the top of your files.
the latest crack at a fix is in axis-latest.tar.gz but it's not been tested much.
chinamill: that is the workaround now and is a good practice anyway.
cradek: Do I still need to upload ini and ngc?
chinamill: no, it's not necessary, but thank you
The ubuntu automatic aupdate rocks!
I'm glad you like it
Much less fuss to try things, therefore more feedback faster
When will we see the stepping values for axis be set in the ini? Would be really good to be able to increase those to at least a mm, instead of 0.1mm at maximum
you mean the incremental jog?
I agree they should be higher for mm
cradek: that reminds me of jogging speed (feed_override doesn't really work for mm)
well.. it does, but it's slooow
you have to set default speed to max speed in the ini, then use the feed override to slow down the jog when necessary.
I noticed another very small bug in axis...
When axis ask if I really want to cntinue (when gcode goes out of buonce, ehh) when I click with mouse it is ok, but when I do tab and enter, it escapes instead of approves... Sorry for the bad report
I think I understand what you're saying.
chinamill: if you want to do it from the keyboard, hit tab then space
chinamill: space invokes the button with focus (black band), enter invokes the default button (large border)
jepler: ok, I used tab to "focus" on the button that says something like go ahead anyway. So if I do tab to change the focus and then enter to hit the button it still escapes, maybe you feel I dont use the keyboard corectly, but it is analog to many other applications.
jepler: think chinamill means some other apps change the default button too when user hits tab
alex_joni: I understand that
I'm not saying it's not a bug
it's just a matter of taste I think..
I always use space on keboard operated buttons (when using TAB)
I think I do too
ok, off to bed.. working tomorrow
chinamill: I've modified the behavior of the dialog (and others like it, if there are any)
chinamill: you may like it better now
chinamill: This change is in HEAD but I haven't decided whether I'll do it in 1.2, where I don't want to make any more changes than I have to.
