hi petev, haw are things?
jepler: i2g backport works
cradek: and the reload fix?
I don't know that I can test any of the jogging/jog wheel changes
I don't have a joystick, but I do have the jogwheel
you want to test the "stuart mod" to jogwheels?
or do you find it repulsive ;-)
I can only find my digital joypad, not an analog one
hm there's no easy way to make 'dot' do some sort of smart partitioning of a graph over multiple pages
it can do multi-page postscript output, but it's to paste together as a grid of pages, with the page edges falling at no particular place
is graphviz any smarter? (or usable)
dot is part of graphviz
maybe there's another program that is more appropriate, I wouldn't know
jmkasunich: I'd probably have trouble determining whether it's the broken behavior he wants or some other broken behavior
thats OK, I haven't started coding it yet
I don't think it belongs in 2.1
I'm now debating between the distance and time based implementations
there actually is a "natural" distance for the distance based version - the distance the axis requires to come to a complete stop from top speed
you know when he said he has a wheel with no marks, I started to understand why he wants this behavior
position sync means nothing to him
its a mouse
also consider that you don't have perfect synchronization when you can switch the wheel from axis to axis
no, a mouse
maybe what he wants is really a joystick...
yeah, a mouse is right
with a mouse, position in controls position out, but with no positive engagement between the two
and the feedback is eyes on the cursor (I mean machine table)
the scrollywheel finally got me to give up my absolute-positioning tablets for mice
even the relativeness of mice kind of turns me off
heh, the scrollywheel is one reason why the ball in this keyboard won't get used much
[02:53:06] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/emc2-sim_2.1.4_i386.deb
anyone want to try it?
wow, not even waiting until the weekend
I only built sim so far. maybe we should test this one a bit more, I kind of failed to get the last couple as good as possible
should probably have put a ~alpha on there, or something
yeah, but I figured you guys could handle it
bad idea probably
I wonder why the deb has grown 200k or so since 2.1.0
(looking at the directory listing here: http://linuxcnc.org/emc2/dists/dapper/emc2.1-sim/binary-i386/)
with care, dpkg -c would tell you
that's my guess
and a few manpages
i2g works, hal_input works
