ok tried it again with ./dxf2gcode_b02 and got "bash: ./dxf2gcode_b02.py: python^m: bad interpreter: no such file or directory"

another download? can you suggest a source?

thanks


If you type ls in the terminal does dxf2gcode_b02.py show up?

You have to use the dot slash filename.ext in Linux to execute a file... if the file is not set to executable then it won't run. open up the file manager and right click on the file and go to properties and make sure executable or something similar is checked. Once the file is set to executable if the file runs ok you can just click or double click depends on how you set that and it should run.

Or type ./dxf2gcode_b02.py in the terminal.

I found out that /usr/bin/python^M: bad interpreter: for dxf2gcode_b02.py
If run /usr/bin/python dxf2gcode_b02.py it will be ok.

or run under linuxcnc "open g-code file" and point to dxf2gcode_b02.py it will work.

but strange dxf2gcode_v01 is working under the same "#!/usr/bin/python" the same line in dxf2gcode_b02 give "/usr/bin/python^M: bad interpreter:"

no ^M found in the dxf2gcode_b02.py file
some windows unix return code problem.

Hi

^M is symbol for carriage return

If you edit a file with a windoze editor it will litter the file with them

Get a decent file manager like mc (Midnight Commander) whose editor shows all the stray formatting characters - and remove them

I can assure you that it IS the problem

I downloaded the linux source package of dxf2gcode and here are the first few lines of the dxf2gcode_b02.py file viewed in mc

Yes MC did it, the ^M was removed and I can call it up from terminal.

I did use tofrodos to try but it does not find the ^M.

Thanks
